A native of Switzerland, Nicole moved to Canada in 2000. The passion and inspiration for her artwork lies in nature - the landscapes and wildlife of the mountain environment. Originally trained as a porcelain painter, Nicole is a graduate of Kunst Gewerbe Schule, Bern. She now explores the freedom of expression that a larger format affords an artist. In each hand-painted original work, Nicole seeks to capture the beauty of this land.
Nicole travels across Canada and Europe to attend Art Fairs and Exhibitions.
This program began in 2013 and continues to remain strong so we are absolutely thrilled to continue our Friends of Num-Ti-Jah Program into the 2016 season. Many thanks to our visiting Artists from 2015 for sharing their passion for all the wonders we celebrate here!
The goal of our Friends of Num-Ti-Jah program is to celebrate and highlight talented local artists, and share in the beauty of Bow Lake and it's surroundings.
Num-Ti-Jah Lodge has a rich history dating back to the 1920s. The original founder, Jimmy Simpson, arrived from England to Canada in 1896 as a teenager. In less than ten years he was guiding scientists, mountaineers, big game hunters and notable artists through the little-explored Rocky Mountains. His wild character, quick wit, and tall tales of the trail have made him one of Canada's most eccentric pioneers.
Num-Ti-Jah is located on Bow Lake, thirty minutes north of Lake Louise on Icefields Parkway (#93) in the heart of the Rockies. Num-Ti-Jah remains one of the last authentic Canadian lodges. Set in a location with unparalleled beauty, our 16-room Lodge provides a quiet, unique experience for guests.
