Nicolette Maguire Bonnstetter is a nationally recognized artist who was born in Iowa. She was raised in a small town with many aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents, all impacting her view of family history.
Nicolette uses bold colors and black in space to create compositions incorporating objects that tie to some of her history growing up.
The juxtaposition of color and space are what makes her work intriguing. It also makes you pause and remember your own history.
