Nicole Grosjean

I grew up in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado with a passion for art and nature. My mother, a sign artist, instilled a deep love of craftsmanship and painting that drove me to an artistic career.

I graduated with a BFA in illustration from the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in Denver, Colorado in 2008. Originally working in digital mediums, I began investigating more traditional watercolor and gouache painting several years ago. I liked the freedom of working with 'layers' in Photoshop illustration and endeavored to carry that through to the more traditional mediums.
