Founder I Principal Artist
Nicolette has a been a full time artists and entrepreneur since the age of sixteen. As one of six children to custom-home-builder-parents, design meets entrepreneurship has always been "in the blood".
"My business hinges on the bespoke process. It is my job to convey the spirit of my clients' vision. It's a very personal process and I love the versatility. One day you're working with a corporate CEO and the next you're playing with a [residential] client's four year old. It keeps life interesting and you learn so much from each one." says Nicolette.
Her reach spans to 17 countries across the globe including the US, Argentina, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Malaysia, Thailand, India, China, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, Belgium, Turkey, Columbia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Panama and Ireland.
Her clientele include two murals for Sherwin William’s Global HQ, Destino Vero Fashion House NYC, noteable DC business figures and political personalities, professional sports players and agents, as well as many of DC's favorite restaurants, to name a few.
"Once a client called and said that she was sitting in her dining room (which I had painted about two years prior) drinking coffee and wanted to tell me how happy the room made her feel. She went on to say that she often went to the room as it had 'such a calming' effect. It is moments like this that remind me of my purpose...and I'm lucky...I get to make people happy." It is also indicative of Nicolette's strong belief in environmental feedback, or the newly coined term R.O.E. (Return on Environment). "The spaces and places we work, live and encounter are powerful. They either feed or deplete us. It's real and it is our job as artists, designers, architects (etc) to bring harmony to the world via aesthetics."
Design centric and dedicated to a lifetime pursuit of creating experiential environments, she decided to launch her abstract art line, Abstract Art Nicolette, in 2017 with the goal of exploring a smaller frame of reference and to indulge her creativity in a minimalist direction. Her canvas work is contemporary in aesthetic with graphic design, landscape, and architectural undertones. It seeks to explore balance, harmony, color and texture to create meditative pieces.
"I have always been in love with the process. My work is very versatile...but the act of using your mind and body within the creation process has always been my own...It's true bliss"
Nicolette currently resides in Washington, DC with her pup Ronaldo.
We believe in giving back. Nicolette began sponsoring a child through World Vision in 2017. Moved by the stories of her sponsor child, in 2020 she decided to launch the GET ART, GIVE BACK campaign. For every piece of art purchased from the Abstract Art Nicolette line, a percent of all proceeds will go to benefit the children of the World Vision Foundation
