HH05 | American Gothic | Access Gallery Artist
Nicole | Access Gallery, Dragon Girl
“We have some of her paintings at my house; a man making pottery, a farmhouse, a truck sitting in front of a house.”
Though her grandmother died many years ago, Nicole still finds inspiration today from the art she left behind.
Likewise, we are inspired by Nicole: even while living below the poverty line, taking care of her mother who has multiple sclerosis, and managing her own developmental disabilities, Nicole works on her art every single day.
“I make art because it’s important to me.”
With this obsessive passion to create, Nicole has found an artistic voice that enables her to immerse people in her rich fantasy lands. We affectionately call her “Dragon Girl” not just because dragons often star in her work, but because they remind us of her: powerful, unique, and capable of anything. She creates art the way she lives her life: byreaching for the mythical.
The process to create mythical art? Simple.
“It makes me feel good when I create my images and they look like the picture in my head.”
