About Me

Nicole Woltman is a weaver that grew up in Chicago, later moving to Wisconsin to attend college. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry in 2005, she later decided to pursue art and received a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee in 2013 with a fibers emphasis. Her background in science and math remained influential on her work, particularly the observation and manipulation of patterns and repetition and the analytical way she approaches each project. Her interest in fibers lead to volunteering at the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts where she has the opportunity to demonstrate the versatility of fibers to children.

Woltman has exhibited artwork in the Kenilworth Gallery and Union Art Gallery at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee as well as the Jazz Gallery in Milwaukee, and was awarded an Elsa Ulbricht Scholarship from the Peck School of the Arts in 2013. She also assisted with the installation of Currents 35 at the Milwaukee Art Museum. She enjoys travelling and experiencing different cultures and cuisines, which have become increasingly influential on her work, and she hopes to further explore these influences in the future.
