And this is where my little creative life lives. Currently teaching workshops, lettering the night away and exploring some land getting lost in mother nature.

I promise I'm just like you trying to figure out how to live in this one super crazy awesome world and now embracing this creative urge inside of me to express my thoughts and connect.

Nicole is such a talented artist (whom I’ve stalked for quite a bit on IG), but her strength as a nurturing teacher was truly astonishing. Where most workshops spend time on the introduction and basics, this workshop instead focus on individual feedback as you play and explore your own lettering style.

Nicole is a magician with a paintbrush, and she truly makes you feel like you can be, too! During her hands-on class she shares her expertise in a way that encourages and motivates students to improve their skills, from beginners to seasoned calligraphers. 10/10 would recommend!
