Nicole Tremblay always knew she wanted to be an artist. In fact, she never seriously considered any other career. She attended the Alberta College of Art and Design and received a Bachelor of Fine Art degree with a specialization in glass in 1998. She worked on her own designs, mostly functional blown glass and glass beads, and also started assisting artist Susan Gottselig in the hot shop. Since 2004 Nicole has been living and working in Canmore. She designs and blows, one by one, glass vases, bowls, scent bottles and ornaments, and makes glass beads at a torch which she uses in her jewelry designs.
