My hope for this website is to create an atmosphere that brings about the light heartedness of art. I plan on pursuing my artistic interests as a digital illustrator for children’s books. I also love drawing caricatures, as I believe they put a huge emphasis on creativity with a sense of humor. Ultimately, I am a curious artistic individual who is willing to experience the fun side of visual arts, and how they are used in an unbiased, appropriate manner. I believe that art should be subjective, make us learn, and help us appreciate ambiguity and creativity.
My name is Nicholas Pillish. I express my creativity as both an artist and musician. I began my musical talents as a little kid in second grade and continue to pursue this hobby. My journey as a visual artist began while taking drawing classes in high school. This sparked off a creative interest of mine. I currently attend University of St. Francis where I am double majoring in both Studio Art and Music Performance.
