Nicole Fieger is a Brooklyn-based illustrator, graphic designer, and comic artist from the not-so-distant lands of Long Island. She received her BFA in Graphic Design from SUNY New Paltz and currently works as a Creative Director at a tech start-up. Her work centers around creating characters and narratives that contain positive and non-stereotypical portrayals of underrepresented groups, focusing primarily on women, people of color, and LGBTQ+ individuals. She primarily works digitally, though occasionally dabbles in watercolor and acrylic paint.
“The piece I will be exhibiting was created to reflect the resilience of women in the face of despair. Despite the many recent attacks on reproductive rights, women are banding together to fight. We are angry and we are frustrated but we are not afraid.”
