Nicole Shaffer lives and works in Oakland, California. Her site-specific installations have been exhibited in non-traditional spaces throughout the Bay Area as well as select locations in Southeast Asia and the US. Her ephemeral works have been shown in spaces varying from abandoned schools and trucks to hotels, and of particular recent interest, homes. Because of her work’s unusual exhibition venues she has gained experience in organizing events to showcase her work. Nicole holds a BFA in Sculpture from the California College of Arts and Crafts, and is a former resident of the Vermont Studio Center and the Stonehouse Residency for the Contemporary Arts in Miramonte, California.
