HGE Designs Co
Nicole Stokes is a fiber artist born and raised in Baltimore City. Her body of work includes portraits, free form and wearable art all crocheted by hand. Nicole’s art was born from her battle with depression around her son’s autism diagnosis. The company was founded when the work simultaneously offered financial resources for a family raising an autistic son and offering the community non-traditional therapies. Since the pandemic the work has shifted from art that is not only wearable but also offers sensory therapy.
