About Nicolette Leigh Yates
I'm a artist from the triad area of North Carolina. I grew up on the edge of Kernersville where I had run of my neighbor's farm fields and my father's hunting trails in the surrounding woods.
I currently live just outside of Asheville, NC in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
I graduated with honors from UNC-Asheville with a B.A. in art (emphasis in sculpture.) The university purchased my final sculptural installation for their permanent collection. It hangs in the New Hall building on campus.
I now primarily make paintings and drawings. I work in many mediums including acrylic, oil/cold wax, graphite, charcoal, and a variety of sculptural materials on occasion.
