Now that I've had a few months to settle into the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco, and set up working in my East Oakland studio, I wanted to share a few announcements from California!

Our transition to the West Coast has been full of ups & downs that come along with uprooting a life and moving cross-country, and the continual challenges of navigating a career as an artist (more on that to come), but I am grateful for the connections and opportunities I've already experienced here in California. 

I am humbled to be the recipient of the Mark M. Glickman and Lanette M. McClure Artist Award, newly established to "support the creation of innovative artwork by emerging artists in California." 

I'll be presenting a solo show of new work at the Pence Gallery (no affiliation to our VP, thankfully!) in Davis, CA in early 2018. I'll be sure to share details closer to the dates, along with other shows between now and then.

I am also offering a sale on the three new paintings shown below, as a thank you for following and supporting my work! 

They'll be 50% off until May 1st, 2017, and available here exclusively in the SALE tab above.

New Studio in San Francisco, California by Nicole Mueller

I'd like to announce that I have officially moved from Baltimore, MD to San Francisco, California! I am excited to expand my painting practice here and am fortunate to have already found a studio, within a community of artists, to work out of in Oakland. 

I value the connections I've made over the years in Baltimore, and look forward to building on them from California, while continuing to grow forward here. I'm in the process of settling in to the city and studio, gearing up for next year, and looking forward to future collaborations in 2017! 

Apartment Therapy House and Studio Tour by Nicole Mueller

Earlier this fall, we had the privilege of inviting D.C.-based photographer Liz Calka into our home, and sharing our live/work space in the city with her. She did an incredible job of capturing the spirit of our home, which we've had a lot of fun filling with DIY projects and art from our Baltimore-based friends who are makers. We got to share the results with Apartment Therapy, and the features just went live!

Check out our Artistic, Industrial Live/Work Loft in South Baltimore (you can even see how we made the TV-Hiding Sliding Art Accent Wall). 

We also stepped into the studio and talked about How to Make Room for Creating Art at Home. I got to share how I work studio time into my schedule, what it's been like painting within our apartment, and what I love about the creative community here in Baltimore.

FIRST CUT by Nicole Mueller

Although bittersweet to see FIRST CUT come down (turns out it's a lot of work to put up an exhibit!), it's been so exciting to see images come back from the show, and to have it reviewed by critics and publications I admire:

I was also lucky to have three incredible artists, friends, & professional photographers help with documenting the show, at different points in the day, to capture the lighting and installation. The images are stunning. Here are a few:
