Interview with Nicole Wolf: Artist, Illustrator, Author
Nicole’s bio, courtesy of Calgary’s Central Library where she recently completed a three month Artist In Residence stint, reads as follows:
“Nicole Wolf is a visual storyteller with a passion for sharing underreported stories. She holds an Associate’s degree in Fine Art at Grant MacEwan University and a Visual Communications degree from ACAD, majoring in Illustration. She spent 2016 backpacking around the world, partnering with volunteer organizations in eighteen countries, doing everything from art directing the design of a volunteer, non-profit cafe in Thailand to helping kids make science murals in India. Her favourite adventure was collaborating with refugee children in Greece on a mural to brighten their camp. All her time on the road fostered a specialization in easy-to-carry materials, like watercolour, ink and acrylic paint. She’s also made animal drawings for children’s programs at the Calgary Zoo and colouring books for new Canadian children, while hunting for the best ramen the city has to offer. Send you ramen tips to her at nicolewolfdesign.com or on Instagram at @nicolewolfdesign“.
