Nicole Erfan was born in Palo Alto, California to a father from Iran and a mother from El Salvador. With a multicultural background and introverted disposition, Nicole always felt out of place in her surroundings. Left to her own devise, her imagination would take over, fostering her intense love and obsession with fairy tales and everything magical. Currently living in Northern California, Nicole is inspired by not only her lush and beautiful surroundings, but by the shadows of her own thoughts and fears she has overcome in life. Using her growth and struggle as a muse, Nicole aims to evoke emotion and empower individuals to face their fears and see the beauty in the struggle.
