Hi, I'm Nicolette.


Born in 1981. I was raised in a rural area right outside of Winston Salem, NC. I explored the hunting trails and farm fields around the farm house I grew up in. I would create epic narratives about the spirit of the forests around me and my relationship to what I observed. I later attended a Buddhist university in Colorado where I studied dance and writing for a year before attending UNC Asheville in my home state. I received a BA in sculpture. I’m currently working in 2D and living in Arden NC with my husband and seven year old daughter.
