Nicole Brown, 32, tells All Woman that it was while she was an introverted student at St Hugh's Preparatory School that the arts programme at the school gave her an outlet to express herself.
After leaving high school at Wolmer's she enrolled at Mount Holyoke College, a liberal arts college for women in Massachusetts because of its diversity in culture.
Later, she would work with Caribbean Research Policy Institute (CAPRI) locally, and it was there that her interest in art resurfaced.
"Since I was somebody who was always interested in art and when I was younger I used to dabble in painting, that interest resurfaced while at CAPRI and I enrolled in some photography courses at Carimac in 2009 with Howard Moo Young. I always had this interest in street photography, documenting photos of ordinary people, telling stories through images," she says.
In 2010 Brown decided to delve into fine art photography and showcased her work at the Liguanea Art Festival as well as Kingston on Edge. Subsequently she built her own website, Nicole Brown Photography.
Brown, who's currently the Government and regulatory affairs officer at Jamaica Public Service Company (JPS), transformed her hobby into a business in 2012 based on comments and feedback she received from friends and family members.
In 2013 she won a bronze medal from the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission for a photo she dubbed 'Introspection', which was a black and white portrait of a boy she took at Reggae Falls seated on a table, looking at a shard of glass in his hand with soap on his face. This she said made her see photography as a tool for advocacy.

Brown also has plans of exploring the social enterprise component of her business to teach disadvantaged youth in underdeveloped communities the art of photography.
"Art is an escape, and photography can be used as a tool for emotional healing. I have volunteered with the Jamaica National Resolution Project, which had photography clubs in high schools where they used photography as a tool for advocacy and a tool to influence public opinion," Brown said.
Also a former executive member of the Women's Leadership Initiative and founder of the University of Chicago and Mount Holyoke Jamaican alumni chapters, Brown is passionate about helping younger women.
