Nikkole Huss is a visual artist working in Orland Park who incorporates the use of drawing, painting, fiber, sculpture and photography into her work. Her interdisciplinary approach stems from the notion that formal and conceptual correlations between media often communicate unexpected results. Organic materials such as wax, wool, natural fibers and inks appear, in combination to be fragile and vulnerable, yet exemplify a duality of inner strength linked to themes of adaptability, resiliency, growth and survival.
As an emerging artist, Huss has participated in numerous exhibits nationally and internationally. Huss has received several recent awards including: 1st Place, Gallery 2007 at Robert F. DeCaprio Art Gallery in Palos Hills and Best Non-Representational, 30th Annual Plaza Art Competition & Exhibition in 2006 at the Beverly Arts Center in Chicago. In 2004, Huss completed an M.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her educational background further consists of: B.S. Ed. In Art Education from Northern Illinois University as a Wells Scholar, study abroad credit in Art History from the American University of Rome, Italy and an A.A. from Moraine Valley Community College as a Robert F. DeCaprio Scholar. Nikkole Huss is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Concordia University in River Forest, Illinois.
