Bright Wall Collective believes that art is essential and can elevate all facets of your everyday experience. We can help you energize your home, business or outdoor space through the use of color and clean, contemporary design.
BWC is a mural painting and design studio based out of southwest Ohio. Led by artists Jenn Acus-Smith and Nicole Trimble, the collective brings together artists from multiple backgrounds and styles to create our unique design aesthetic.
Jenn Acus-Smith has always been a maker of curious things. Whether doodling, painting or repurposing vintage finds, she lives to create. Jenn is always dreaming of ways to transform ordinary spaces with some fresh paint! She is inspired by oddities, street art and travel to new places.
In addition to her work with BWC, Jenn manages the StreetSpark mural program which hires professional and student artists to create murals in Hamilton, Ohio. She also makes mixed media artwork and jewelry. Jenn received a BA and MA in art education with a concentration in painting/printmaking from Miami University .Examples of Jenn’s work can be found at www.jennacusart.com.
In addition to her work with BWC, Nicole is Assistant Professor of Electronic Media Communications at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College and an active studio artist. Her practice is grounded in oil painting and observation of the human figure while exploring ways this traditional medium can intersect with electronic media such as photography, video and digital imaging. Her work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the United States and in publications such as Movers & Makers, AEQAI, Studio Visit and Professional Artist Magazine. She holds a BFA in painting and printmaking from Miami University, and an MFA from the University of Cincinnati's College of DAAP. She currently lives and works in Cincinnati, OH.
