Nicole Franz is a mixed-media collage artist, living and working in her hometown on Long Island, New York. She holds a degree in Illustration and Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology and a Masters Degree in Art Education. She has worked in the fashion industry, hip-hop music industry, and taught various art forms for over 10 years. Currently Nicole is a full-time artist working out of her Long Island Studio. Her true passion is portraiture. Nicole is merging her fashion background and fine art skills together to create compelling portraits of women. These portraits are created using only recycled materials. Most of the materials are collected from various towns on Long Island. She uses local publications, advertisements, magazines, napkins, menus, and any interesting scraps she can find. Nicole is also a member of the LI artist collective 'Art That Matters'. Her work has been exhibited in galleries from Brooklyn to the Hamptons.

"I create portraits with recycled papers. My art is my outlet. I never know what my pieces are going to look like until they are complete. I love that about my work. Women are my inspiration. They are complex, strong, emotional, and beautiful. I try to capture this in my art. Working in New York City's fashion and hip-hop music industry has helped me fine tune my eye for glamour, color, detail, texture and design. Teaching art has enriched my skills as a fine artist. My portraits are the joining of these art worlds. They are constantly changing, morphing, and taking on a personality of their own. When I am working on them, the world around me shuts down. The work consumes me. The process is therapeutic." -Nicole Franz
