Artist Biography

Nicole Wilde was born in Brooklyn, New York but always felt California’s siren call of freedom and creativity. In 1987, she moved to Los Angeles. From an early age, Nicole wrote poetry and short stories, followed by song lyrics, some of which were put to music for bands in which she played bass guitar. And yet, she still longed for a way to express her creativity in a visual format. Possessing a “good eye” but lacking a good camera, she purchased her first DSLR in 2012 and began a driving, all-encompassing attempt at learning photography through books, online videos, and workshops. She expanded her knowledge of Photoshop in the same way and eventually combined the two disciplines, thereby finally finding her creative outlet in digital art.

Nicole’s other lifelong passion has been animals. She has volunteered at rescues and shelters, photographed dogs to improve their chances of adoption, and co-ran a rescue sanctuary in California for wolves and wolfdogs, where three of the residents came home to live with her for ten years until their passing. It was inevitable that her love of animals and nature would find its way into her art. All of Nicole’s images begin with one or more of her photographs, which are taken in natural settings, zoos, or sanctuaries. These images may then be combined, altered, or enhanced using Photoshop, creativity, and imagination to create a final work of digital art. Nicole’s work has won international awards, been displayed in galleries, and been featured in magazines.

Nicole and her husband live in southern California with their two rescued northern breed dogs and boatloads of dog hair.

 

Artist Statement

Animals. Nature. Emotion. Connection. These are the things that drive my passion to create art. My work is about the emotional life of animals, the interconnection of all beings, and the unseen magic that surrounds us all. Each piece begins with one or more of my photographs. By applying equal parts Photoshop and imagination, bit by bit an image is transformed into a fantastical universe, or an artistic portrait with deep texture and emotion. My hope is that my art touches the soul, stirs the emotions, increases our respect and appreciation for animals, and acts as a catalyst to reflect on the beauty and magic that is within us and all around us.
