Nicole Storrs is a South Florida born sculptor who has lived in the Fort Lauderdale area her entire life and is greatly influenced by the many different cultures that surround her every day. For the past 16 years she has made a living as a ceramics instructor, teaching people with mental health challenges to express themselves in ways that are productive and positive for their recovery and victory over the severe and persistant mental illnesses that they suffer from. Otherwise known as the controversial pseudonym NicoleHatesYou, her sarcasm is evident in the art pieces she produces, as they usually express love, broken trust, and other dramatic and painful emotional obstacles. In contrast, she uses the entire gamut of bright colors and shiny surfaces. As she puts it, “I am in constant pursuit of creating the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. My dream is to create a diamond with my own hands.".
