nicole stevenson (aka random nicole) hails from the little city of orange, california where she started crafting things at an early age. she started her first crafty business at age 9, selling handmade stationary out of an old refrigerator box (decorated to look like a shop) on her front lawn. she then moved onto to edible treats... creating and selling chocolates in front of her dad's barber shop.


crafting as a business was put on temporary hold when she discovered writing…leading to hours of furious scribbling in composition notebooks.
while attending graduate school for creative writing in san francisco, nicole started painting. after her first art show sold out, she moved down to los angeles to make a go of it as an artist. she landed on venice beach, selling her mixed media paintings on the boardwalk with other local artisans. tourists and locals walking by often paused to adore her simple illustrative paintings but kept saying, "where can I put it?" that's when she changed gears and began making art for people to wear instead of hang on the wall. random nicole, her 10 year old line of unique art-inspired clothing was born.


nicole now divides her time and creativity between:
1. creating and selling one of a kind things for her line: random nicole
2. co-producing patchwork indie arts & crafts festival a bi-annual southern california event featuring emerging makers of art, clothing, food, music and more with her aunt delilah snell,
3. teaching DIY workshops and teaching crafts privately for everything from birthday parties to corporate team building
4. consulting and doing custom design work for individuals and businesses
5. writing short stories for her in progress MFA in creative writing


“our world is hyperspeed- taking the time to sit down and make something solid with your hands is a gift. crafting alone or with others brings back a sense of community and pride in the handmade.”
