In the Studio
Moe Moe Productions provides an online display of various works of art, created by Tia Monae' Nichols. Her works intend to raise awareness of the different styles of traditional and nontraditional artist techniques, and to better provide art accessibility for everyone. In her recent years, Miss Nichols has taken on the practice of artmaking with a multimedia approach. She incorporates several self-taught techniques, and the influences of her training in academic settings to produce paintings, prints, sculptures, drawings, and photographs.
Tia Nichols is originally from Newport News, Virginia and completed her Bachelors of Arts (B.A.) Degree in Studio Art, from University of Virginia in Charlottesville. Concentrating in Printmaking, and minoring in American Sign Language & Deaf Studies, she wishes to incorporate the two visual forms to expand the arts community and its imagery.
Recently, she has completed her Master's in Fine Arts (M.F.A.) in Printmaking from Wayne State University. She hopes to launch a Fine Arts Center for under resourced communities in and surrounding the Peninsula District and Tidewater Region of Virginia (Newport News, Hampton Roads, Norfolk, VA Beach, Richmond, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, etc.)
