About Nico LeBarge

Moving from Brooklyn, New York to the White Mountains of New Hampshire, Nico LeBarge takes inspiration from the mountains and small town life to bleed into her seemingly vacant landscapes.

She lives with her boyfriend and business partner Michael Miles of Miles Manufacturing and her two dogs Comet and Jill.
