Bio & CV




Nicole Gadiel is a visual artist working within the fields of photography and painting; creating fine art and designing interior decor artwork for private and commercial clients around the globe.

Born and raised in Canada, Nicole moved to Denmark as a teenager. She has definitely become a Great Dane since then - but under certain circumstances, her inner Canadian will undoubtedly show her face. Suffice to say, Nicole's dual citizenship has of yet not lead to a split personality! But it has inspired her to view the world from new perspectives and different angles; a trait she successfully implemented during her previous career in strategic communications - and now adeptly applies to the creation of artwork, as she visually translates the obvious to the emotive.

As a photographer, Nicole finds inspiration in impromptu situations and continuously strives to illustrate that artistic impressions can be found anywhere - if we really look at what we see. As a painter, she creates calm abstractions infused with painted light that aim to awaken an ethereal sense of time and place personal to each viewer's perceptions. 

Nicole's fine art photography has most recently received awards at International Photography Awards, Prix de la Photographie Paris and Tokyo International Foto Awards.
