Nichole is such an amazingly talented artist!!!! I have her a vague idea of what I was looking for and she delivered more than I could've imagined! The shipping was fast (next day delivery even though I ordered late in the afternoon) and it was packaged in an ultra safe manner to make sure it was not damaged. She even included care instructions! This is not my first piece from her, and it won't be my last! I highly recommend her work to everyone!

Nichole was wonderful to work with, and her art looks great in my beach-themed guest room in progress. Thank you!

I really love all the colors. This piece was exactly what I was hoping for and I barely gave any direction :)

The uncertain beginnings are always fascinating to look back on after a piece is finished.
Ever wonder what the carbon paper looks like after use? This is part of my prep process which involves resizing my finished concept and transferring the results to watercolor paper.

About

The Story Behind Studio ANF

2013 was the year I made the decision to focus on art full-time. I'm pretty sure my "starting out" story isn't all that dissimilar from a lot of other artists on Etsy.

You quit your job and take a risk on yourself. You second guess every decision to the nth degree. You worry about the crap-shoot that is called "pricing" and how you're supposed to market yourself, and generate interest in your particular brand of art.

Those, plus a million other thoughts and questions ricochet around your brain until a loving friend, husband, wife or partner hands you a glass of wine and tells you to "chill for a sec".

Well, okay maybe a bottle of wine...

Then you hit your groove, you find that "something" which provides a clear focus and a path forward. Suddenly, you feel as though everything up to this point has been worth it.

I started out creating black and white illustrations by hand on canvases in a more modern, simplistic style. A few of those listings are still lingering around my shop. I love those paintings, but I really found my stride with watercolor. I enjoy the soft, watery aspects of the medium, and I wanted to explore that visual effect in my work.

I started with "splash paintings" and eventually my work morphed into mixed media when I was introduced to Copic Marker. Now I start with a watercolor base and use Copics, pastels and fine liner for vibrancy and definition.

My shop is a visual representation of my artistic journey and my hope is to inspire others with my craft.
