Skill Level:
beginner
Instructor Bio:
Nicole began sewing at an early age but found her passion in quilting with the birth of her first child in 1988. After seeing an exhibit of work by Nancy Crow in 1992, she realized that fiber-and specifically quilts-could be used to create art, and set herself on a path to create one of kind art quilts to be enjoyed on the wall. To date, she has created many commissioned works that are unique to each client?s needs and wants, while developing her own style of art quilts reflecting her daily life and inspirations.
Nicole?s work can be found in private collections all over that world including China, Argentina, Chile, Guatemala, and Germany, as well as locally in Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Albuquerque, and several states in the USA.
Several of her latest work focuses on the use of color, texture, line, among other design elements in nontraditional ways. She is especially inspired by color, nature (especially trees), the textures of every day life such as bark on a tree, marbles lying on a shelf, a little creature on a leaf, or the big vistas of her native Southwest.
Some of her art quilts have a very specific theme, but the more successful pieces, she feels, are the ones that speak to each viewer differently. Hopefully, it will remind someone of a childhood backyard memory, a soft breeze in the forest, or simply inspire quiet contemplation.
More than anything, Nicole hopes that her work brings as much joy to the viewer as she had in creating it.
