Nicole Nappi

Nicole is a self-taught artist painting out of her home studio in Brunswick, Maine.  Born and raised in northern California, she was artistic throughout her childhood.  After high school, she enlisted and served 4 years in the US Navy.  Then life happened as it does... work, marriage, children… and art took a back seat for nearly 30 years before she began painting again.  

Nicole moved to Maine in 2001 when her spouse received orders to Naval Air Station Brunswick.  Although she has lived all over the country, she feels especially blessed to call Maine home. Nicole finds inspiration in the beauty of Maine’s working waterfronts, coastal communities, landscapes & nature, and occasionally a penguin because, well, they’re her favorite!  

She participates in several art festivals annually, such as the Brunswick Outdoor Art Festival, where she won 1st place in the “painting” category last year (2021), and the 2021 IGOR Fall Salon Online Exhibition with inclusion in the November 2021 issue of American Art Collector magazine for my piece “Green Lobster Buoys.”

Nicole is a member of the International Guild of Realism (IGOR), Meetinghouse Arts Gallery in Freeport, The Lemont Block Collective in Brunswick, and is excited to announce that she will be joining the talented team at Saltwater Artists in New Harbor in spring 2022.  For more information, please visit www.Nicoles-ArtRoom.com.
