Originally from Upstate New York, Nicole Miller has called Ketchikan her forever home for over 10 years. 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 brining 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. As the owner of The Aqua Orca small business in town, she is naturally always on the lookout for a whale spout to make her day complete.
