As a child, Nicole Harbick liked to draw and took painting classes. In high school, she developed an interest for the technical side of art – from drafting and engineering to graphic arts. In college, her desires led her toward graphic arts. She studied at Pacific University, in Forest Grove, OR, in their Integrated Media program. Here she learned of digital image manipulation and creation, layout design, web design, photography, traditional art, and how these artistic mediums work together in today’s marketing world. Nicole graduated from Pacific University in 2004 with two degrees, a Bachelor’s of Arts in Integrated Media, and another in Marketing. Nicole enjoys examining textures, layers and geometric shapes. She combines these with her natural eye for design and color to produce fresh and fun creations.
