Nicole Puscas has been surrounded by art for as long as she can remember. Her mother showed Nicole her graphite, colored pencil, and watercolor pieces when she was younger, and she has been a huge inspiration ever since. The main reason she really got into watercolor was because of her mother. Without the materials and resources available to her, she would not be where she is now, and she is forever grateful. Her whole family inspires most of her work because the love and care she has for them makes her want to honor them in some sort of way.
