About

About the Dead Girl

Artist Nicole (Birmingham) Garcia AKA Living Dead Girl Nicole has been doing art since she was a young batling. When asked to describe herself, Nicole will answer you with the quote she is most known for ‘when other little girls wanted to be ballerinas, I wanted to be Elvira’. If something is odd or macabre Nicole is drawn to it. She finds beauty in all things dark, spooky and mythical. Aspects of that always come through in her artwork as an extension of herself.

Nicole was the little girl who was using markers to make her Barbie dolls look "different", using crayons to enter coloring contests to win tickets to the circus and wishing she had a little baby brother so Jareth the Goblin King would come and take them away to his castle.

When given an assignment in school she always found a way to make her work stand out from the rest. When all the other kids were doing their drawings on pretty colorful birds, Nicole was doing hers on an owl in mid flight hunting a mouse. She picked up at a young age that art was another outlet for her. She could use it to express who she was and what she loved. Even if it was not the norm.

Nicole has continued to express herself in all aspects of life from her own personal fashion sense to her artwork. Even as an adult Nicole will tell you that she sees herself as a mixture of Elvira meets Jem. "Give me spooky and creepy with a side of glitter and glam... that's me!"

Living Dead Girl Nicole was a name that stuck with her thanks to her love for horror and all things that rock. What started as a screen name due to her admiration for Rob Zombie stuck with her when people started to associate her artwork with the name as well. She found it rather fitting as Rob Zombie had always been someone that inspired her as an artist. She could relate to his work and it always reminded her that it’s ok to break out of your shell and to continue doing what you love no matter how dark the genre is. If people wanted to associate her and her artwork in that way then she was honored to be known by it.

Nicole enjoys anything that gets her creative blood flowing. She uses her creativity to work in various mediums and to support the things she is passionate about. Known for her portraits, wearable Dead Girl Decay accessories and undead zombie creations; she also enjoys photography, desktop publishing and using makeup as an art form. She is also the creator and captain of the Etsy Massacre Team. She created this Etsy Team when she realized there was no other teams on Etsy that catered to artists inspired by the horror movie industry. Since then many new teams have formed but she is proud to say she created the 1st of it's kind. Nicole was the Promotions Coordinator for the band Axe Man's Bridge and has also teamed up with the band One Eyed Doll. Nicole's work has been a part of both band's merch line. She was also discovered by Joy Love who has since teamed up with Nicole to contribute to her up and coming website, FinalGirl.com (sister company of HorrorHound Ltd.). Nicole and her husband are members of the Hardcore Hearse Club. Since becoming members, Nicole has taken lead of creating the club's website and maintaining it. Projects aside, Nicole is a full time marketing assistant for a design and installation company.

Nicole also uses her artwork to give back. She has donated her work and volunteered her time to bring a creative spin to good causes through benefits, fundraisers and sales through her Etsy shop. Nicole is a prime example that there are no limits to a creative mind even when it has a touch of creepy.

Nicole's biggest artistic inspiration has always been her father Tom Birmingham. Having a father who was an artist gave her a creative edge. When other kids were still learning how to color in the lines, Nicole was asking her father to show her how to shade to make her art stand out. He showed her creativity was limitless and how using things around the house could easily make your work more intriguing (who knew white out could transform into a starry sky). Not only did he help her to advance her skills but most importantly, always believed in her and her talent.

Other artist's who inspire Nicole's creepy little imagination to run free and embrace her dreams, fantasies and nightmares are:

Jim Henson
Tim Burton
Rob Zombie
Brian Froud
Dave Hartman
Cleve Hall
Tom Savini
Eric Pigors
Chad Savage
J. Anthony Kosar

For all Zombie Head Creations,original portraits (not prints) and Dead Girl Decay items that require me to order supplies to make......I ask the buyer to pay 1/2 down non refundable down payment to assure they are serious about their purchase. This is because these items are very time consuming to make. The Zombie heads are also very pricey to make. And when ordering items for Dead Girl Decay that I do not have in stock requires me to research and order the items. The buyer will pay the remaining 1/2 plus shipping when the item is completed and is ready to be shipped. If the buyer decides to cancel the order during the process of making the item or on completion of the item the down payment will not be refunded. It will pay for my time and supplies that I took to make the item. So only serious inquiries please.

When it comes to custom items I send photos to the buyer when I am done creating it. This allows for the buyer to let me know if anything needs to be changed or added. I ship the item once the buyer confirms they are happy with it :) Please see shipping policy regarding allowing extra time for arrival of your custom item.

If you commission me to replicate something that has already been sold in my shop or I have made in the past please allow for slight variances. Sometimes supplies need to be ordered to replicate the item and might not be from the same supplier. All pieces are created by hand, so no two items are identical which makes the item unique. That's the beauty of the products on Etsy!

See an item in my shop that you love but don't get paid until a certain date? Send me a convo request asking me to reserve the item for you. I will reserve the item for up to 10 days. If the item is not purchased in 10 days the item is taken off reserve and then put back up for sale to the public.
