about  

Sheila Nicolin is a Detroit-based painter and pattern designer. Within her practice, she incorporates her commercial background into her work through bold pattern, color and trend iconography. Her dreamlike paintings and portraits question the nature of the real versus unreal; dream versus reality; the overwhelmed individual versus fast-paced culture.
