Artwork by: Nicole Whitcraft-Warren

This month, the Long Beach Island branch of the Ocean County Library in Surf City will be displaying works of local artist Nicole Whitcraft-Warren. Her art focuses on realism, using watercolor, acrylics and colored pencil.

“I’ve been doing this all my life,” said the 37-year-old artist. “I was 2 years old when I started drawing horses and never stopped.”

The daughter of Robert “Okie” Whitcraft and Marianne Krupa, Whitcraft-Warren said she would have 35 creations on display.

“This is my first major show,” she said. “I’ve had some work displayed at Firefly in Surf City.”

Warren said she has also painted murals for area businesses. At the Surf City Bait and Tackle shop, she has a mural depicting a fisherman, striped bass and a Great White shark.

“During the summer, they display it outside, and a lot of people take pictures of it,” she said.

The branch will hold a reception for Whitcraft-Warren on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served.

For more information, call the branch at 609-494-2480. E.E.
