Kelsea Nichols is an artist with concentrations in both printmaking and sculpture, but she works within various non-traditional mediums and is not media specific in her practice. Nichols has shown nationally and received multiple awards in group exhibitions such as Delta National Small Prints Exhibition in Jonesboro, Arkansas, PRINTAUSTIN in Austin, Texas, ARC Gallery, and Zhou B Art Center both in Chicago, Illinois. Nichols has shown work multiple times (group and solo exhibitions) at Cleaner Gallery + Projects in Chicago, Illinois. She has taught classes and workshops in both printmaking and sculpture.

Most recently Nichols was a guest artist at Pigeonhole Press (Chicago, Illinois) where she produced a multicolor etching informed by ancient celestial events. Earth, color, pattern, and humor are common themes within her work, and she is currently working on a body of work influenced by the land, the paranormal, occultism, and esoteric thought.
