A native of Southern California, Nichole Blackburn is the Creative Director of Celadon Studio and Fine Art. She has been drawing and painting her entire life. With knowledge in all areas of color and design, Nichole has done everything from large–scale murals to canvas art, three-story ceilings, to murals in elevators. Her specialties include decorative wall finishes, ceilings and custom murals.

Nichole attended the Otis Art Center in Los Angeles on a scholarship in the Young Artist's Program. She then went on to receive her B.A. in Fine Art and Design from San Diego State University. Nichole has taught children's art classes at the San Diego Museum of Art, as well as worked as a designer for the San Diego Union Tribune, even dabbling in set design. Taking her love of drawing and painting to the next level, Nichole has traveled to over 40 countries worldwide to fully broaden her art experience.

Always maintaining a creative edge, Nichole continually invests her time into new painting classes and workshops. She has trained all over the world with the top muralists and decorative painters in the industry. Most recently, Nichole moved abroad to Paris, France (2014-2015) to study with world-renowned decorative painter Jean Sable at his atelier in Versailles. Prior to that, Nichole spent a month on the East Coast studying under William Cochran, one of the country's leading trompe l'oeil muralists. During this time she joined a select team of six artists who worked on a five-story public mural project called "The Dreaming." Nichole also studied under world-renowned artists Nicola Vigini (Italy), Pascal Amblard (France), and Sean Crosby (New York), as well as Melanie Royals of Royal Design Studio.

Nichole has brought her unique style and artwork to numerous Los Angeles hot spots, celebrity homes and landmark hotels. Working with some of the best architects, interior designers and ateliers in the industry, Nichole has built a solid reputation and a name you can trust.

When Nichole is not painting, she enjoys spending time with her twin sister, practicing yoga, hiking, and traveling to far off places. Nichole is also very passionate about her nonprofit, Big Sky Countries, which donates murals to children's orphanages, hospitals and schools around the world. www.bigskycountries.com
