Nichole Maury currently lives in Kalamazoo, MI where she teaches printmaking at Western Michigan University and serves as curator of The School of Art's Print Collection.  Nichole received her M.F.A. in Printmaking from the University of Iowa and her B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her printmaking pursuits extend beyond the traditional to include interactive works, unique image making, and the exploration of non-toxic methods. She has exhibited widely including The International Print Center New York, The Chicago Cultural Center, and many juried exhibitions including The Bradley National Print and Drawing Exhibition, The Los Angeles Printmaking Society's National Exhibition, and The Print Center's Annual International Competition.

Of her work, Maury writes, "I remember the simple passions of childhood, the unwavering dedication to staying inside the imposing black lines of a coloring book page and attempting, in crayon, a sort of printed perfection. The desire to take an image and make it my own, mark by mark.  The images I make now are entirely my own, the boundaries self-imposed systems of drawn and printed information guided by ordered thought and unfiltered emotion.  While each mark is an automatic response to the mark made before it, the insidious autobiographical nature of my work, which addresses issues of identity and dislocation, inevitably impacts the overall content and construction of these images."
