Adria Nicole is a South St. Louis City resident, Community Arts Training Institute Fellow, and recipient of a St. Louis Regional Arts Commission Artists Support Grant Award. She is a multi-faceted maker of art, music, and magic, infusing her work with the love she is determined to share with the world.
As a singer/songwriter, Adria has performed as both a lead and background vocalist, spanning many genres of music. She began playing ukulele in 2011 and has since been teaching others to play. In 2012, she founded Uke Go Girl!, a 501c3 nonprofit providing free ukuleles and supplies, as well as instrumental, vocal, and songwriting instruction to girls.
Adria's paintings and photography have been featured in publications such as UltraViolet Underground's Purple Magazine and the Witchy Report. Her current mixed-media work (digital illustration & botanical photography) focuses on fanciful human representations in reimagined natural and man-made landscapes.
In addition to her artistic pursuits, this wife and mother of two, is currently studying for a career in clinical herbalism and organizing the ProudFlower Community Herbal Project. She also practises herbal alchemy and creates custom ritual oils and potions as BLK MGK WOMAN.
