Nicole Sullivan is an artist who works with oil and water-based paint to create her artwork in addition to making digital collages and videos complete with audio online through mixed media. Nicole grew up in an impoverished and abusive environment with mentally and physically disabled parents which ultimately lead to her being taken away from them before she turned 13. Thankfully, she turned to art during her dark times. Self-expression through visual aids was especially important when she was afraid her written words would be discovered and used against her.  She found solace in creating things and was amazed at how delightful smearing color on any surface was.

Today, she states that she “ knew the world was my canvas” in regards to how she saw her art during that time period.

Nowadays she believes that anything is considered art and that everything conveys a message! Her main goal is to not just understand the world around her, but help others to understand what is going on in the world as well as her perspective on things. Below is one of her digital pieces of art as well as two abstract paintings she has done on canvas.

Paula Mould is a mentor, author, and artist who works primarily with acrylic paints on stretched canvas or on cradled birch panels.

Paula has had the privilege to paint for a nonprofit organization called IMAlive from 2016 until 2018. The main focus of IMAlive is to prevent suicide as well as spread suicide awareness all across America. In order to raise funds to achieve their goal, IMAlive does outreach through attending conventions for the TV show, Supernatural. With that being said, Paula’s job was to paint between two to four large canvases (from 2’x4′ to 4’x4′) each month that there was a convention taking place. Furthermore, some months had more than one convention so she was painting rather frequently. From there, IMAlive used her paintings and canvases to help raise the funding needed to spread suicide awareness. Basically, representatives of IMAlive would go to the conventions and then have the cast of Supernatural sign Paula’s paintings. Afterward, they auctioned them off to raise funds for IMAlive which is super cool when you think that one piece of art can have such an impact on the lives of so many people.

Paula herself even states that:

“During that time my marriage was falling apart and I had some other things going on in my life. Painting for IMAlive gave me purpose, helped me contribute to my larger community of fellow fans, and kept me busy. The connections and friendships I made are with me to this day.”

So not only was she helping others through her paintings but her art also provided her with a healthy outlet for her emotions.
