Nicole Miazgowicz is a visual artist and illustrator working with graphite, charcoal, watercolor and ink on paper. Her work is primarily narrative based, with roots in folklore, herbalism, and historical symbolism. Focusing on flora and fauna, she draws upon traditional symbolism to work out and harmonize contrasting themes that are present in our lives and in the stories she chooses to illustrate.
With a theater performance background, a childhood spent in rural Michigan, and her many travels, Nicole uses her love of storytelling and exploring to inform her research and work. The driving force behind her practice and need to connect with the viewer is a belief that imagination and curiosity are among the most important qualities that will get us through this world.
