MISSION

Yellow Ochre Studio specializes in hand painted gouache portraits and fine art prints of local produce from local farms in the Southeastern Massachusetts area. Yellow Ochre Studio seeks to spread the word and educate consumers on the joys and benefits of knowing your vegetables, your farmers, and your community through beautiful illustrations that help identify a diverse range of produce grown in the region and express gratitude to the farmers who devote their lives to growing our food in a healthy and sustainable way.

STORY

Yellow Ochre Studio is a project by artist Nichole Speciale, a Southeastern Massachusetts native who has recently returned to the area after 5 years of living in San Diego, CA, where she pursued a Masters of Fine Art degree at the University of California, San Diego. There her love of food grew into a passion as she experienced the wealth of fresh, seasonal, organic produce available in California. Upon returning to Southeastern MA, Nichole became determined to find this experience at home. Luckily, her mother had been keeping an eye on the great work of Freedom Food Farm in Raynham, MA, growing and raising food completely free of pesticides, GMOs, hormones, or anything that is unnatural. They soon became CSA members and Nichole reached out to the farmers at Freedom Food Farm to start volunteering, learning about growing and harvesting. Inspired by the beautiful, completely organic produce they’ve been growing, she began painting portraits of the food being produced, in the hope that she could raise awareness for this farm and others in the area working to keep our food natural. Yellow Ochre Studio has set out on its mission with this first series of illustrations and prints.
