Grace Nickels

Nickels, our youngest artist, was born in Los Angeles and is pursuing her artistic career by applying to art school. For her, art is her form of confidence. To feel bold. The use of bold color demonstrates the different levels to one’s personality, including her own. We are not all one thing. Nothing is just one thing. It would be selfish of me to make art for just one person, when we are all so beautifully different.

She draws women, their faces, their bodies. No matter who we are, we are constantly creating new versions of ourselves. Nickels wants to express changes with color. Her work is bold because bold is something she has always wanted to be: to be a bold person. Bold is not confined to the rules. Bold inspires us to make the rules. The result might just be art.
