Jason Nicholas

Artist . Creative . Ice Cream Lover 

Born with a pencil in my mouth (don't worry, the pencil wasn't sharpened), I have always been passionate about exploring my creativity and mindfulness through art and design. 

Growing up I was and still am inspired by the spirits of Bob Ross, Jim Henson, Mr. Rogers, Frank Lloyd Wright, and Walt Disney.​

My sketches, paintings, & photography are inspired and driven by architecture & memories.

I love motivating people along their artistic creative paths.
