Nicole Lloyd- Deutsch

Nicole Lloyd hails from Allentown, Pennsylvania. At the age of thirteen, after not making the final cut for the JV volleyball team, she enrolled in a local photography class. She was instantly hooked and by the time she was eighteen she was packing her bags for New York City to study art. Nicole graduated with honors from the School of Visual Arts with a B.F.A in Photography; not long after graduation (and a slew of different jobs including custom color printer, rental studio manager and scanning technician) Nicole made her way to Los Angeles and began working as an Art Buyer/Producer for major ad agencies. Today, Nicole works as a Senior Art Buyer on brands like Volkswagen and Dr Pepper, is a freelance photo consultant and the co-author of the art blog Superluminal—all while enthusiastically pursuing her fine art career.
