Congratulations Nicolette Toussaint!

Nicolette Toussaint wrote a guest post for K&RD last April while I was in Chicago for KBIS. Nicolette's a designer, writer and artist from San Francisco and she's had a pretty rough go of it this year. In what I'm convinced is the first sign of a turning tide, she's opening a show of her paintings this month.

The show's at The Artist's Alley, a fine art gallery in the SOMA district of San Francisco. It's about a block from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. If you're in San Francisco and you'd like to see her show, shoot me an e-mail and I'll send you the particulars.

Nicolette's a skilled watercolorist, something I learned only recently. She's selling prints of her work on her Etsy shop and she has a more extensive profile on the Behance Network.

She's also available for hire as an architectural renderer, hint hint.

So congratulations to Nicolette on her gallery show. Her prints would make terrific gifts this season, don't you think?


  1. Wow gorgeous stuff :) I love the flowers on the black background, reminds me of Russian lacquer work (of which I am a huge fan)

  2. I had no idea she had this kind of water color talent until yesterday and I am blown away. And you're right, those poppies do a Slavic feel to them. That's a very good thing.

  3. Thank you Paul! A beautiful post, and one for which I am most appreciative.

  4. Nim, I have one of those lacquered boxes. I got it many years ago in the USSR. My box has an image of St. Basil's church and Red Square, rather than flowers, but yes, I can see why you would say that. Now that just might inspire me to go paint something else along that line...!

  5. Yes! It does look like Russian Lacquer work! Really nice post, especially the orange flowers!

    Nicolette is definitely a gifted artist!

  6. Nicolette is definitely an extremely talented watercolor artist. I've been telling her for years she should do more with that, and do architectural rendering.


Talk to me!
