Oakland is often referred to as “the town” to San Francisco’s “the city.”  The Town collection looks at the diversity of talent that Oakland has produced.  From the broadway star to the punk singer, the 2’x3′ drawings are a work in progress of diverse individuals.


I like to tackle a lot of various art styles and mediums.  My “ink stamp” and “posterized” paintings have become what I’m most known for, but have recently gone back to my original love, drawing.  My focus is now mainly large, sometimes life size drawings.  I also love to write and have been lucky enough to write for some amazing publications including Hello Giggles and Elite Daily.  I also may or may not – but most definitely do – have about 15 books in the works that will probably never see the light of day.


  • 5 star review  Nicole is remarkably talented. She has a gift for capturing the nuances of emotion in her art. I can recommend no better artist from whom buy art or a custom commission!

  • 5 star review  Kola did a custom piece and painted a huge portrait. It was perfect! She did such a great job and I receive compliments on it all the time. We gave her a picture to reference and she put her own modern spin on it and I absolutely love it!

  • 5 star review  I had the privilege of meeting Kola 6 years ago and was immediately impressed with her work! She created a gorgeous water color painting of Christ for me as a gift and I’ve treasured it for years! Unfortunately it was damaged in An accident this past year! I’ve commissioned her to create a new piece for me and I’m so excited to see what her creativity comes up with! She is the type of artist that you can trust with simply giving an idea and a size to and what she does with it will always impress and leave you speechless!

  • 5 star review  This artist is dear to me. Her art work and talent have given my dreams a visual. As an entrepreneur it is not always easy to take an idea and get it across to clients. Kola has used her talent in my business on my walls. From graffiti and poems to abstract work, she is phenomenal. Her unique ability to take a picture and duplicate it is surreal. Her imagination and detail work have given my business wings.
