Fall 2019 Student Worker Hiring

Nicole Scannell - Technician

Nicole Scannell was born and raised in Chicago. She received her BFA in Printmaking at Northern Illinois University. The artist has her MFA in Sculpture at Texas A&M University. Traveling exposed her to various ecosystems scattered across our planet. The places she visited were vastly different than her hometown. The textures, natural fractal-like patterns, symbiotic relationships of plant forms, and animals observed on these travels were of particular interest to her and have provided inspiration for the forms, textures, and colors of her sculptures. Her work mimics the texture and forms of corals of the Great Barrier Reef.
