Born in Oakville, Ontario, Nicole developed an early appreciation for painting the Canadian landscape from her father. Nicole has an undergraduate degree in Art History from Queen’s University, and an honours diploma in Applied Museum Studies from Algonquin College. After working in the Art Rental and Sales industry in Victoria, B.C., Nicole and her husband Jeff settled in Ottawa in 1997 and have two wonderful teenaged kids. Over the years, Nicole has consistently developed her painting and figurative skills through her studies at the Ottawa School of Art and local artists groups.
In 2010, Nicole began exhibiting her work in the Ottawa region and now paints full time at her studio as a member of The Loft Artists collective. Her paintings are held in private collections within Canada, the U.S. and Europe.
