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.
