Nadia Westcott grew up in Boston, MA and received her BA from the University of Vermont. She is currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Born of Indonesian and American heritage, she was raised in a culturally rich and diverse environment, where her family traveled the world learning and collecting cultural artifacts that inspired her curiosities and subconsciously enabled her to create her own iconography inspired by the world and cultures around her. Through meditation and inner stillness, the line she creates is a spontaneous story, that unfolds a universal aesthetic informed by African and Asian textiles, Pacific North West totems, Javanese shadow puppets, and Japanese Calligraphy. Her work is a conversational melting pot of culture, her own influence and heritage, as well as the spaces and communities that her art occupies.
