When Nicole Hobbs isn’t busy taking care of her two children she is creating vibrant acrylic paintings.

“I do a lot of Landscapes for sure,” said Hobbs. Not always mountains. Sometimes I do waves. I’ve done a few portraits as well.”

Hobbs is currently showing a collection of paintings at Whitewater.

“It’s all Whitewater scenery and landscapes that I’ve painted in the last couple years,” she said.

Hobbs has been painting since she was a teenager.

Living in northern British Columbia she formed a connection with her high school art teacher.

“I spent six years in Mexico,” she said. “My mentor from high school opened a gallery down there so I took a lot of lessons and in exchange I helped him in his gallery.”

This is one of Hobbs’ first art shows in Nelson.

Her work will be on display for the whole ski season at Whitewater.
