Nicole Poole is an artist and creative professional living in San Antonio, Texas. Her studio practice revolves around painting, sculpture and large scale installations. The work that she creates is Formalist in nature as it heavily relies on material meaning and the process in which it is made. By employing a multi-media approach, she explores themes of memory, family histories, support structures and the passage of time. Pushing the boundary between painting and sculpture allows her to create unique works that can live in either realm.
Poole has exhibited her work in several group exhibitions including the Annual Juried Student Exhibitions at UTSA in 2016, 2017 and 2018. Other exhibitions include the San Antonio Art League Museum and Common Currents: Artists Explore 300 Years of San Antonio.
In 2018, Poole earned both a Bachelor of Fine Art and Bachelor of Art; Art History and Criticism at the University of Texas at San Antonio. During her time at UTSA, she was the recipient of the Mellon Humanities Pathways Fellowship as well as the Elton Smith Memorial Endowed Scholarship in Art and the Gloria Galt Endowed Scholarship in Art. Poole also holds a Bachelor of Business Administration; Marketing and Communication from Eastern Michigan University.
Poole is currently a resident artist at Clamp Light Studios and Gallery in San Antonio, Texas.
