Californian-born Nicole Moné is an American artist currently living and painting in Westchester, New York. Her representational paintings have
garnered many awards, and reside in collections throughout the United States and abroad.

Moné’s paintings incorporate elements of both Realism and Impressionism and are characterized by the application of traditional techniques
and classical methods. Moné’s painting style has been shaped by her physical environment, her formal training and her individual experiences,
observations and passions. While living in Southern California and, more recently, while traveling through Spain, she has been inspired by Latin-
American and Spanish subjects and themes, including the celebratory images from Día de los Muertos and the passionate art of Flamenco.  

She has studied at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy, and in New York at the School of Visual Arts where she studied portraiture with Marvin
Mattelson, and the Art Students League where she studied with renowned painters: Aaron Shikler, Everett Raymond Kinstler, and Max Ginsberg.

Her work has been in American Art Collector Magazine and in American Artist Magazine, and has exhibited at, most notably, the Butler Institute
of American Art in Youngstown, OH, the Salmagundi Club, & the National Arts Club in New York City.

In addition to her portrait and gallery paintings, Moné also produced a series of 52 works over the course of a single year, initially inspired by the
human skeleton, entitled The Skeleton Project. These thematic pieces are the beginning of an ongoing venture by the artist.
