For artist Nicole Jeffords, portraiture is a revelatory process. Things seem to come through about a person as she paints them, and these things are incorporated into the work itself. Because of this gift of clairvoyance, Nicole is able to paint faces in a way that reveals what’s going on beneath the surface. She is able to read clients’ emotional patterns, strengths, and weaknesses through studying their photos. While she frequently gives independent readings for people, she is happiest when combining her talents as a painter and clairvoyant.
