About

Hi, I’m Nicolina. I live in Ottawa, Ontario. I make art which is sometimes real and sometimes surreal, sometimes creepy and usually bizzare but always honest. I enjoy trying to make the surreal seem as real as possible. I like to try and unify completely incompatible elements, or to illustrate the connection between them. I've shown work in several group shows, in the arts showcase at Stone's in Sault Ste. Marie, ON, and currently show at the wierd and wonderful Abnorm Gallery in Ottawa.

I have worked as a Graphic designer, printer, and production artist. When I'm doing designs I like to work with simple clean shapes and lines, And I'm always aware of the importance of designing for the client. My paintings are where I can do what I want, design is where I share my best for something else.
