Facebook: Art by Nicole Coursen
Nicole Coursen is a self taught visual artist from Edmonton Alberta, who was raised in Miami Florida. She works in variety of mediums ranging from acrylic paintings to textile art. Nicole first started painting at 30 years old. She took a few classes to learn the basics and then continued her journey on a self led path of trial and error. She fully embraced the idea of learning by just doing. After painting for 10 years she fell in love with needle felting. She creates not only beautiful vistas and still life creations in this new medium but also needle felted sculptures. Her style is constantly evolving and growing as she learns new techniques to express her ideas.
“What the heck is needle felting” you ask?
Nicole will be actively needle felting at her booth on 105th street during the Whyte Avenue Art Walk. Stop by to say hello and watch her work on these unique creations.
