Nicole Winter is an emerging Caribbean artist who specializes in the field of ceramics. She has recently obtained her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts and is currently continuing her studies in the field of Art Education at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts. Nicole has been practicing her art and exhibiting locally since 2006. Her work and her approach are unconventional. Her process embodies her exploration with wildlife and life cycles using clay as her medium. Her designs are inspired by Myriapods and other underground creatures that propel her intuition of equilibrium and poise especially through the drama and dynamism of these forms. Nicole sees her work as a metaphor of the society we live in; while her works aim to educate, bring awareness, admiration and appreciation of particular functions within nature. Nicole hopes that her sculptures will inspire innovative ways of viewing referencing and using the environment as a resource for creating contemporary art works.
