About the artist
artist Nicole, the eldest of three children, was born to Eddie and Sherry
Minnis on March 24, 1970. She graduated from Queen's College Senior High
School in 1986 with seven G.C.E.'s, including a distinction in Art.
Her recognition as a young Bahamian painter started soon after she left
school when she won numerous Central Bank and Esso competitions. She also
received an award in the senior division of the Arts and Crafts Exhibition
for meritorious works of Art.
In May of 1988, she held her first individual Art Exhibition and participated
in a joint Caribbean Art Exhibition held in Toronto, Canada. She has participated
in numerous joint family art shows along with her father and sister, Roshanne.
Her work has been displayed in the National Art Gallery of the Bahamas' Inaugural
Nicole works mainly in oils. In her paintings, she tries to capture the beauty
of the Bahamian people enjoying natural, everyday activities. Her paintings
are in private art collections throughout the Bahamas, Barbados, Canada, and
the United States.
Nicole never regrets having chosen to become an artist, as it gives her the
freedom to pursue a career as a pioneer minister of Jehovah's Christian Witneses.
