Nicole Milkovich was born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Nicole graduated with her Diploma in Studio Art from Capilano College in 1997 and went on to complete her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Emily Carr in 2000.

Nicole was brought up in a household that was focussed on design, architecture, great food, and hockey. So far the design and architecture part are the obvious influences in her paintings. The food and hockey are mainstays in her personal life but you never know when those worlds could collide.

Nicole creates paintings that build on her love of architectural forms, repetition, and her obsession with colour. Nicole has been part of group shows in the past but this will be her first solo exhibit.

spring is coming, really.

this relatively new company is based in the heart of sweden...

"our company is a mix of flamboyant individuals who see and do things differently and have a wealth of international experience. We are guided by a common goal – to create functional products that work better, solve problems, are a pleasure to use and, of course, look great!"

well, they certainly did that, because these 2 pieces are design award winners. 

"manufactured from recyclable plastic, it can be mounted on any smooth window pane, thanks to an innovative double-sided suction cup. the carefully selected materials can cope with extreme temperatures as well as UV rays. it is designed for small birds and features a drainage hole at the base of the bowl. diameter 11.5 cm.

care instructions: disassemble and wash every three to four months. dishwasher-safe in upper basket."

"stylish and minimal, yet at the same time striking, this innovative design typifies Born in Sweden’s approach; functional, practical and always aesthetically pleasing. made of 18-0 stainless steel with a flexible silicone hose. the hose has a built-in magnet that allows it to be attached to the can’s body when not in use. when watering your plants, simply hold the metal cylinder with one hand and the hose in the other. to start or stop the water flow, just move the metal cylinder up or down. available in brushed or mirror-polished steel finishes as well as 8 glossy powder-coated options. height 31 cm, diameter 8 cm, volume 1.5 liters.
