Nicole Young / Sentences That Pass Through my Mind


Nicole Young is an artist based on the traditional, unceded and occupied territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations (Vancouver, BC.) Working in the confluence of visual arts, environmentalism and storytelling, Nicole’s works are as much science experiments as they are conversations on ways to approach climate justice.

Moving seamlessly between large scale textile installations, works on canvas, garments, and graceful drawings, Nicole’s works aesthetically resemble collage while maintaining their painterly qualities. She creates her own pigments and dyes out of natural and often wild foraged materials including plant matter and minerals as a way to deepen her connection with the land, and to create a dialogue about waste-free practices. 

Born in Ontario, Nicole attended the University of British Columbia Okanagan where she received a BFA in Visual Arts and Art History, and studied studio arts and art history at the University of California Los Angeles. Her work has been exhibited in Canada and abroad since 2010, her paintings are held in private collections across the globe, and her client lists includes coveted brands like Aritzia.
