Nicole Mueller is a wonderful painter now based in Oakland, California. Prior to moving to the West Coast, Nicole was in Baltimore, Maryland. That’s where we caught up with her and watched her in action for our fun little film.


Nicole works mostly with acrylic, especially spray paint, and collages on paper, PVC or canvas. When she was younger, Nicole was attracted to animation, in college she studied illustration and painting. After school she started working on large murals, and from that graduated to creating large abstract paintings. Nicole says: “ I try and create complex color relationships, with shapes that hang in the same space but feel almost animated.”
