Portrait by Nicole Bourgea, used in the DC Design House

While designing our room at the DC Design House, we noted the amount of magnificent artwork throughout the house.  We particularly fell smitten with the master bathroom, designed by Darlene Molnar, who hung a collection by local artists. One of the portraits Darlene displayed in her bathroom was by painter Nicole Bourgea:

Nicole Bourgea is a third generation artist and resident of Washington, DC.  Her contemporary expressionistic paintings range from individual and home portraits, to larger projects for schools, offices, and interior designers.  Underlying all of her work is a concern with microcosms that suggest a whole larger than the sum of it’s parts.  

Below are a few images of Nicole’s recent work.

Nicole accepts commissions from private and public clients.   She is currently working on an Urban Portrait Project, AS IS.  The project asks the question, “Do we really see each other?”.  You can find out more about her series on her website or her blog, I Hate to Alarm You.
