Studio 55 Presents: Artist talk with Nicole Chilton

Nicole Chilton Art


Nicole Chilton will talk about using art journals to unlock creativity and get past the fear of a blank canvas. She will provide a hands-on exercise and list of supplies to get you started at home. Please bring scissors and a glue stick. Paper and other supplies will be furnished.

Nicole is a multi-media abstract artist and writer living in Southwest Missouri. She works quickly and intuitively, capturing emotion rather than reality, and uses vivid color and floral motifs as inspiration. Nicole explores unlocking creativity through art journaling and dream interpretation, about which she is writing a book.

"Leading art journal workshops is a passion of mine because I love watching people who say they aren't artists create something that inspires them and motivates them," Nicole says. She has taught workshops independently and through the Springfield-Greene County Library system. 

Upcoming exhibits include:
Black Out at Obelisk Home - October
Solo Exhibit at The Mud Lounge - November
2020 Art Journal Prep workshop - December

When Nicole isn't creating art, she works full time at the Springfield Regional Arts Council as the Director of Marketing and Development. She also freelance writes and illustrates for a variety of publications, including Metropolitan Bride Magazine, and has two children who are actively involved in the performing arts.
