Nicole Richards - Artist




Everything I have ever made is a reflection of the supreme sense of wonder I feel when confronted with the natural world. It is an endless reservoir of possibility for new life, and new artwork. I want my voice to highlight the hidden messages that sometimes get left behind in a society so tumultuous, beautiful, terrible and loud. We have a lot to learn from the plants and animals that we share this planet with. I hope to explore their messages through prints and drawings.


 I have my Masters of Art in Printmaking from Wayne State University, Detroit, MI.
