47 x 44” | botanical ink on canvas with sewn textiles, 2023. Unframed.

Nicole Young is a visual artist and art consultant based on the traditional, unceded and occupied territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Wautuh First Nations (Vancouver, BC.) Working in the confluence of environmentalism, material exploration, and storytelling, Nicole’s works are as much science experiments as they are conversations on ways to approach climate justice. She creates her own pigments and dyes out of natural materials including plant matter and minerals as a way to deepen her connection with the natural world, and to create a dialogue about waste-free practices. Moving seamlessly between large-scale textile installations, works on canvas, garments, and graceful drawings, Nicole’s works blend traditional approaches to textile art with gestural, painterly characteristics.

Born in Ontario, Nicole attended the University of British Columbia Okanagan where she received a BFA in Visual Arts and Art History, and studied studio arts and art history at the University of California Los Angeles. Her work has been exhibited in Canada and abroad since 2010, and her paintings are in private collections throughout the globe.
