Nicole Michaud was born to a French Canadian family in New Hampshire, U.S. in the 1970s. Her ancestors emigrated from western France in the mid-1600s, to settle farmland in the Bas-Saint-Laurent region of Canada. Her family remained primarily in the Province of Quebec for six generations, with some family members emigrating to New England in the late 1800s to find economic opportunity in the textile mills and other industries in New Hampshire. She has traveled abroad and extensively throughout the United States, and has visited all but two of the 50 U.S. States (North Dakota and Hawaii).
Ms. Michaud creates two-dimensional works in various media, and frequently draws upon themes of memory, nature, and personal history. She moves between abstraction and representation for many projects, and enjoys finding the intermediate area between the two. She is represented by Stanek Gallery in Philadelphia, PA.
