Get to know MS. Brenda Nickolaus


Brenda Nickolaus is an Artist, photographer and wildlife educator.  "I guide others through Soul art and nature to live a life of creative well being. My Soul Art & Nature classes lets kids and adults explore and learn about our outside environment while experiencing hands on art activities. I am a self taught artist and have been guiding others to find their inner artist.

I believe in no child left inside and I believe what we love we will protect.  I love guiding children and adults to explore and connect to nature and unplug from technology using Mother Nature as our muse and find the sacred in the ordinary.  It is all about feeling the sun and the wind, listening to the leaves and the call of the birds, and finding contentment outdoors.

I really feel it's important for children to reconnect to nature and so I created the Jr Naturalist program and led story-time and educational tours at Busch Wildlife Sanctuary for the past 17 years. I'm also involved in other local parks in teaching about our environment.  It's important to stop to look at a spiderweb or listen to a bird song and see where they are and explore the magical side of nature. I teach Art and Nature camps at the Jupiter Community Center and around town for nature centers, home-school groups, and after care.

Join me and let's create..find our more on my website at and receive your 7 day magical butterfly journey and receive emails to stay in touch on upcoming classes.  Click on my etsy shop and see what I have created for you
