My Studio is in Bellefonte, DE. Anyone may visit by appointment, but my works are on display at the Bellefonte Arts Gallery down the street from my studio. 803 Brandywine Blvd.
Nicole Kristiana FitzGibbon creates her paintings from her home in Bellefonte, DE. She is known for the distinctive pattern and expressive forms in her Asian-styled artworks. You'll also find some less common creatures in the collection--a love of learning about nature and animals comes through in the choices. Her paintings are primarily in gouache, an opaque watercolor, and there are often hints of gold and silver.
"My Ebullient Creatures live somewhere between Bohemian, PBS and embracing the joy of the child within! Over the years, I have created over 100 animal paintings, each with distinctive and abstract patterns reflecting something wonderful about the creature I've just painted. Each painting is designed so you view it as a whole. At the same time you're happily distracted by fun elements that delight your eye. This artwork is enchanting to look at and expressive in its wonderful forms. Paintings are primarily in gouache, with some in watercolor, and others with gilded inks. Imagination and creativity fly off the paper in these pieces. They;re meant to inspire joy!"
Nicole studied art for over 12 years at five universities and internationally in Italy, with degrees from both Bryn Mawr College and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
