Nichole Abshire, Actor / Filmmaker
Nichole Abshire has tried many careers and spent ten years as an elementary school teacher before giving herself permission to be an artist. She has always admired the work of storytellers and loves the marriage between the visual and the literary in the form of screenplays. The desire to know the experience of an actor performing a writer’s words led her to an acting class. This acting exploration ignited an additional artistic fire. These days Nichole can be found facilitating a nourishing screenwriter’s group one night a week and stretching herself in a challenging acting class another night. She has had the privilege of doing a variety of acting work from commercials to film and performed in her first play this past Spring. She still hopes to write a masterpiece and knows that keeping the company of writers is the surest way to make that happen.
