In high school, Nielsen became a part of the National Art Honors Society, and later received a scholarship based on the quality of her portfolio to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. During Nielsen’s undergraduate studies, her work was focused primarily on
Custom hand-drawn and hand-painted portraits of people, pets, houses and classic cars.
