Hi! I’m Nicole Watson, a Midwest girl who married a Southern
boy and now lives in Houston, Texas.
Art has always been a constant for me … from collecting
random bits of paper at a young age, to selling my first painting in high
school, then discovering mixed media while studying art and design at Iowa
State University (ISU). Other stops along my art journey include scrapbooking,
card making, freelance photography, and layout/graphic design.
I enjoy the messy hands that result from creating. Mixed
media allows me to discover new art forms while uniquely combining the things I
love most—whether fun mediums like watercolor, pastel, or acrylic on canvas to
textural elements like gesso, ephemera, and other found objects.
My proudest accomplishments this past year include
completing Donna’s 48 Weeks class and binding the 17 plus pound journal that
resulted, as well as finishing my Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree/Russian
Studies minor as a distance student at ISU.
After taking many online and in-person art classes and
creating in my studio, I’m excited to begin sharing my art with the world while
hopefully inspiring others to do the same.
