Nicole Maynard creates paintings, drawings, digital drawings, and collages exploring the intersection between agency and chance. Maynard extends this investigation by designing tabletop games, using game mechanisms to create player choice/strategies balanced with luck. Creating interactive, social experiences with concepts related to her paintings places these games in the realm of social art.
