Nichole McDaniel is a professional artist with domestic and international clients. She was born in 1983 in Indiana. Early on, she was exposed to her Grandfathers’ and Father’s woodworking, often observing different techniques captivated Nichole’s curiosity.

Nichole’s earliest fascinations were of silhouettes. Observing the sun’s interaction with the horizon, and appreciating in the beauty of these natural occurring shadows and silhouettes inevitably set the tone for her imaginative eye.

Nichole graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelors of Art from Western Illinois. She currently resides in Southern California to pursue her passion and art.

Her current works are a collection of contemporary landscapes and abstracts; inspired by the natural formations and contours of her local surroundings and travels.

Her artwork showcases a full spectrum of bright, vivid colors highlighting the delicate and detailed silhouettes. Nichole’s handcrafted pieces consist of a unique process involving aerosol, acrylic, and resin on custom built canvas or wood panel.

The simplicity of silhouettes has become her mantra, and through her art, she aims to express herself in the purest form possible.

For almost a decade, Nichole’s techniques have grown increasingly intricate and complex. She has developed surgically refined hands, ones steady enough to maneuver her main instrument, an “X-acto knife” with great ease and precision. Often, the process to prepare a single silhouette, takes up to 60 hours. However, the use of these silhouettes allows Nichole to develop greater depth to the composition and control of colors, patterns and feel of the piece.
