Nichol Skaggs is a self-taught, visionary artist who merges photography with traditional art mediums. She is also a nature lover living in a geodesic dome nestled in the woods near Lake Michigan with her husband Jerry of 30 years and their son Quinn.
Nichol’s life has always revolved around the arts – painting, photography, music, and dancing. Seeing the world through a creative lens, she had a long career as a concert and fashion photographer in Grand Rapids, MI working with Modeling agencies, Actors, Venues, and Magazines. Nichol also traveled to NYC where Rolling Stone Magazine recognized her natural eye for photography and accepted her as a freelance concert photographer. Musicians and Bands she has photographed include Kiss, Prince, Santana, Stevie Nicks, Kid Rock, Billy Squier, Tom Petty, Tori Amos, and No Doubt.
Over the last ten years, Nichol has worked with many incredible female thought leaders in the fields of Women's Empowerment, Self-Help, Soul Passion, and the Divine Feminine Movement.
As an intuitive artist, she explores the feminine essence and the energy of intimate settings with nature.
Art is a universal language and the artist is a channel of visual communication through which activation of consciousness can occur for the onlooker. Nichol’s art reflects, like a mirror, spiritual concepts to awaken the viewers' soul in hopes of elevating our social structures to benefit nature and all living things.
“I like to think of myself as an alchemist employing elements of nature to transmute ordinary paint on canvas into forms that others can deeply connect with in ways that words alone cannot express.”
In her free time, she loves to garden and play with the animals on her homestead while learning about organic non-GMO raw foods and other alternative health modalities. The study of ancient cultures, religions, and exploring spirituality is an ongoing passion. Nichol is currently dreaming of a vacation with her family in Hawaii and swimming with the dolphins.
"My deepest gratitude for your encouragement and support as we play in this divine sparkling experience together."
