Nicole Austin is a mixed media artist, designer, and instructor from Tempe, AZ with a BA in Creative Arts. Her first canvas was every surface at her grandma’s house (walls, under the coffee table, books) and that is probably why she loves to draw on every surface to this day! She believes that everyone has a unique style and desire to create, and that we all are born curious and creative. Her art is messy, colorful, layered, and expressive. She has taught mixed media workshops since 2016 and her art has been featured in several publications including Art Journaling, Brush, and Strawberry Moon Magazine.
