Nicole Emerson was born in Brandon Manitoba but raised in Calgary Alberta, where she found her inspirations for her future as a visual artist and received her BFA from the Alberta College of Art + Design with a major in Sculpture. Primarily focusing on sculpture, installation and set design Nicole speaks about communicating her subconscious understandings and interpretations of the world around her through physical objects, collections and more.   “I experience life as a turbulent sea of sensory information that I am constantly swimming through, questioning my existence in this strange world that I am immersed in. By physically penetrating nature with synthetic objects, I attempt to break down the barriers of the organic and the fabricated. By representing these ideas through three-dimensional works I begin to try to communicate the inner workings of my mind to those who are equally as curious” – Nicole Emerson AKA Nikki VonPanda
