Nicolle Cure is a Colombian-American Artist and Hearing Health Advocate based in Miami, Florida.
Her fluid abstract paintings explore the relationship between sound and life, inspired by her sudden unilateral hearing loss in 2017 and the diagnosis of several conditions that severely affect her hearing and balance. During the onset of this condition and adjusting to a new normal, Nicolle shifted her creative approach to a mixed-media technique incorporating soft washes and expressive and intuitive mark-making. She then created her signature series titled The Colors of Sound, a collection of powerful paintings that illustrate her experience with chronic pain and hearing loss.
Nicolle is constantly exploring the duality of emotions and sensations, which is represented by how she interchanges color palettes from collection to collection – painting with vibrant colors to bring joy and pleasant memories to each viewer and later switching to soft washes of paint in serene neutral palettes to create a window to a calming place, peaceful abstract landscapes she often calls whispers and sweet lullabies. This is proof of her work's versatility and commitment to the arts –– actively investigating, exploring, and pushing herself to new creative challenges in her studio.
Nicolle graduated magna cum laude from the University of Florida with a Bachelor's degree in Advertising and a degree in Computer Arts Animation. She also holds several certifications from The Sotheby's Institute of Art.
Nicolle has been featured in blogs and publications, including a book highlighting Latin American art in the United States. In addition, she has won numerous awards for her art and philanthropic work raising awareness about invisible disabilities. Her art is held in corporate and private collections across the globe.
