About the Artist

Balancing Act - Self Portrait in Colored Pencil 12" x 36" 

Nicole Caulfield

My still-lifes and portraiture often explore the strangeness of depicting space, depth and form on a 2-dimensional surface. I enjoy creating space. I often tell my students that a realist artist is a magician, since we are essentially illusionists trying to make it seem like an object is there when it is not. 

To see my work in person, come see me at the Portland Saturday Market in Old Town, Portland, OR.
