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. I endeavor to combine my passions for fantasy and craftsmanship into unique works of art. To me, there is nothing more valuable than a object that an artist has created with their own hands. I want to build pieces that are not only illustrations, but wonderfully complex environments in their own right. I am constantly trying new techniques and pushing the boundaries of materials and mediums.
