Nichole share how her artwork is connected to the spirituality and to animilism. She is interested in a contemporary myth. A background in art history, as well as an interest in sociology and myth from prehistoric to contemporary times informs her work and ideas. Conceptually, she explore ideas about human nature via the figure.
