Orange County Based Contemporary Artist
Nichole McDaniel’s diverse artistic vision and style is celebrated in a variety of series. Finding inspiration in a single moment, a color palette, or even a feeling can be seen in many of her series. It is about sharing an experience through a landscape or capturing a feeling in an abstract.
Nichole’s artistic vision covers a large range of subjects, typically in mixed media format while experimenting with different mediums and pushing their limits to compliment each piece. Her range of genres include Abstract, Pop Art, and Contemporary Landscapes. Her recent series include Vertical Abstract Panels, Modern Vintage Pop Art, Daydreaming Clouds, Cityscapes, Piers, and Tree Portraits.
Growing up in Indiana, Nichole found inspiration in the peaceful and subtle elements of nature. A single tree in the middle of a field, the first snow of the year, and the colors of the leaves as they change colors are a few examples of her inspiration from time spent living in the Midwest.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Western Illinois University, she made her way to Southern California where the vast ocean, warm sunshine and palm trees frequent her mind and her canvas. For Nichole, it is about expressing a moment or feeling that is important to share with others. After all, life is about the little connections we make with one another.
Currently Nichole is represented by several galleries and participates in shows around the globe. Recent international exhibitions include Jhansi, India’s Art Gallery of Government Museum and Tokyo, Japan’s The National Art Center, where in 2019 she received an award of excellence. Coming up this April 2022, Nichole will be featured in "The 21st Japan International Art Exchange Exhibition" at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, curated by Julienne Johnson.
