The subject matter Nicole develops is a direct reflection of her life as well as from stories of women who inspire her. Using multilayered concepts, Nicole articulates through her paintbrush her desire to create visual conversations. Through observation and eavesdropping, Nicole examines the interpersonal interactions around her to form the narratives of her work to express perspectives.
