Nicole Waszak


Nicole Waszak is a contemporary figurative painter working out of San Diego. Born in Key West, Florida and moving many times as a child, she grew up with a love for people watching in ever changing environments. Her figurative art is characterized by patterned backgrounds and expressions caught in the moment. She often draws inspiration from her daughter whose development she has portrayed over the last six years. Waszak has exhibited her artwork around the country. She has had work featured at the Oceanside Museum of Art and in several local magazines throughout southern California as well as discussed on KPBS’ Midday Edition. Her original paintings are in private collections throughout the United States, Canada, Iceland, and Germany. She studied at Marylhurst University in Portland, Oregon after changing her major from mathematics to fine art.  In 2016 Waszak was nominated for the San Diego Art Prize.
