Nicole Grosjean of PaperFauna

For the month of August, Balefire Goods welcomes Nicole Grosjean as she showcases an illuminated alphabet featuring fantasy creatures along with other artworks and jewelry.

Nicole's layered paper illustrations are hand-painted in watercolor and gouache and many of the pieces in this collection are accented with 24K gold and gemstones. Each design is patterned from detailed drawings, hand-cut, and then layered to create various depths depending on the size of the piece. Many of her pieces have 1000 or more individual cut paper elements and can take up to six months to complete.

Join us for drinks, snacks, and a wonderful evening celebrating local art. In addition to our opening, Olde Town Arvada is a great destination for First Friday with openings at Vouna, The Cereal Box, Hunter Bay Coffee Roasters, and more.
