Nicole Alexander is a self-taught visual artist currently residing in Ontario, Canada. Nicole’s paintings in oil, acrylic and watercolour reflect a unique Afro-Caribbean vibe. Having spent her childhood and youth in the two island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, Nicole’s inspiration for her paintings stems from her love of Caribbean dance, poetry, calypso music and most importantly from the beauty of her culture and heritage. Like one of her favourite mentor artists, Elizabeth Catlett, who endured and fought through racial barriers to make a name for herself, Nicole stands by Catlett’s message of creating art for all people to enjoy.
Nicole started drawing and painting from a very young age and under the guidance of the grandmother who raised her, Nicole was encouraged to focus her studies on the Sciences and less so on the Arts. When Nicole immigrated to Canada in her late teens she went on to pursue and earn her Bachelor of Science degree at York University. After years of working and when her career path brought her little to no satisfaction Nicole took to pens and paints as a personal motivator and has not put them down since. Now Nicole uses her paintings to motivate others, using the images she creates to represent messages of hope, peace, love, faith and joy. Nicole just recently graduated with her Bachelor of Education degree. Now wife and mother of three and in a time when bullying and cyber bullying are major issues affecting students, Nicole has created art workshops focused on boosting the self esteem of children and youth teaching them to appreciate themselves while exploring their own creativity through the arts. With her Ontario College of Teachers Certificate, her love of working with children and the opportunity to share her passion, the workshops are helping students find the beauty within themselves, in others and in the world.

Recent group exhibitions include From the Soul, the Scotiabank Caribana official Art Exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum and showings in various Municipal buildings throughout Ontario.

Nicole’s work can be found in a myriad of public and private art collections both in Canada and abroad. She is also a member of the Caribbean Canadian Artists, The Association of African Canadian artists and the Black Artist’s Collective.

Artist’s Statement.
“I am inspired to put paint whenever I feel deeply moved by the beauty and joy in the universe that surrounds me. At times that beauty may exist in the lyrics of a song, a stanza of a poem, the lines in a scriptural verse or even a glimpse of an image that I see. Wherever it may present itself, it is the starting point for what I put onto canvas as I try to capture the essence of that mood and how it makes me feel. Coming from a place where I never thought that I was beautiful based on the colour of my skin, my paintings are a reminder to me and a lesson to my children that beauty comes in all shades and forms. My preferred medium of choice is oil, as the paint allows me to work at a leisurely pace and be relaxed during the process. My art is a reflection of the message of peace, love, joy and hope that lifts my spirit and helps me see the beauty in the world around me.“
