Nicole Lovett Miller paints and people listen.
What the heart and mind can’t put into words, she will express in vibrant and free-flowing strokes, evoking feelings that linger — long after the first glance.
Nicole Lovett Miller has been painting since her early childhood and professionally since 1996. As a young girl, she learned how to draw under mentor, Allen Johnson, who recognized her limitless talent. She later earned a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Liberal Studies from the University of Pacific, practicing different styles and techniques of painting, switching between mediums of watercolor and acrylic.
Lovett quickly learned that to be a working artist she would need to supplement her income. It was then that she decided to return to college and earn a Single Subject Credential in Art and a Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential. As an elementary school art teacher, Lovett dedicated herself to working with young minds to share the beauty only art can express. A synergy was created, leading Lovett to paint several new masterpieces.
Lovett paints in free form. “I love using mass amounts of color that is scrubbed with a wide range of brushes — layering the paint in portraits, and applying broad, loose brushstrokes in landscapes. I strive to convey a lot of feeling and expression with minimal brush strokes, says Lovett. The marbleizing technique of pushing the paint with the brush work is very exciting.”
