Hello, my name is Peter and welcome to The SeaGlass Studio!!!
My Art Journey began on December 17th 2011. That was the date of “Painting Day for Dad” The event was conceived and organized with the help of artist John Lohse as well as attended by my family. The intention was to provide my Dad Chris Nicolaou a day of Art Therapy. “Painting Day for Dad” was one of the many ways I helped my dad fight cancer as his caregiver.
The last 8 years have been an amazing journey of creative exploration and self expression. I have been blessed to have been able to create as well as help those in need with my creations. I am grateful for everyone that has helped, encouraged, taught and believed in me.
Mission: To live a happy creative life where my imagination and creations provide for and propel me all over the world to collaborate, make a great show, sell or donate my art and help along the way.
Current Project - Soul Paint and The Boogie Wall - Soul Paint is a fun, interactive, expressive, philanthropic, colorful, collaborative experience. It combines live painting on The SeaGlass Collection, art on a Surf, Boogie and Skimboard and the Soul Train dance line. You are invited to form a Soul Train line and dance your way up to the Boogie Wall.
The SeaGlass Collection - Art on a Surf, Boogie and Skim Board
Each Surf, Boogie and Skim board has been generously donated, arted on by me as well collaborated on with the community with the intention of helping those in need with color and creativity. Each piece is either sold, auctioned or raffled at fundraisers that I have produced, co-produced as well as invited to participate in with 100% of the proceeds donated Charity.
