Recently, I had the pleasure of going to support a friend of mine at her exhibition. I enjoy Nicole's work because it's raw and passionate, yet peaceful. Her recent works feature large wood sculptures, that are reminiscent of trees and plants. Her works seem to connect with, and incorporate elements of earthly fantasies. The muted colors make the works very easy to view, even though some of her complex artistic techniques might leave viewers anxious to know how it was executed. My favorites are her ink drawings; I love the details and intricacy in those works. I also really love her batiks because the colours are so vibrant and the images so profound. I'm glad to know Nicole and glad that she is consistently creating. You can find more about her and her work here.

I have always been a daydreamer. I think that's where a lot of my pieces are born. The mixing of -mixing the fantasy with the real (world). My works really look to bring out the hidden surprises of those two worlds. Being fortunate enough to find interesting shapes, colors and beauty in almost anything. I can look at an old/rotting tree and dead flowers and find its beauty and that is what I want to incorporate in my artwork. - Nicole Pritchett
