Originally from Upstate New York, Nicole Miller has called Ketchikan, Alaska her forever home for over 10 years. Nicole is the owner of her small business, The Aqua Orca. Having loved creating art since a young age, Nicole seems to have found her passion among all things nautical, coastal, and ocean themed. Despite the often-rainy weather of Southeast Alaska, Nicole adores sunshine and strives to communicate this beautiful place she calls home in vibrant and colorful ways. She sees bringing joy through cheerful pops of unconventional color to be one of her goals in life! When she's not creating watercolor paintings or painting buoys carved from wine corks, Nicole can be found beachcombing with her daughter Grace and dog Grady. She is always on the lookout for a whale spout to make her day complete.
