Hand-Crafted Art by: Nicole Fournier
medium: Photography + Encaustic Wax Painting
Nicole Fournier's passion for photography was first expressed during a 4th grade trip to Washington DC, when she snuck away from her group to photograph a spiral staircase. Many years later, Nicole honed her skills at university by obtaining a B.F.A. degree in Graphic Design –alongside a minor in Photography– graduating Cum Laude in her class.
Nicole has 16 years of experience working in Photography and Publishing. She assisted many photographers in event, lifestyle, portrait, and wedding photography. Nicole's work has been exhibited in several galleries throughout the United States, and in the UK. Her photographs have been published in textbooks, science journals, and Shutterbug Magazine.
Her early photographic style centered around concepts, shooting people in abandoned buildings. In the late 90’s, Nicole began experimenting with industrial imagery with an emphasis on pattern and texture. In 2006, she moved from Jersey City New Jersey to Los Angeles. Longing for her earlier style of concepts with a poetic flair, and along with her longtime interest in encaustic wax paintings, she decided to experiment with encaustics and image transfers. She enjoyed the medium very much, and returned to her earlier interest; producing artwork with concepts of self-growth in mind.
Currently residing in Los Angeles, Nicole Fournier enjoys pursuing her photographic career in art and commercial photography. She is currently available for assignment and portrait work. For more information, please visit http://nicolefournier.com.
