Nickie began her creative journey as a teen, encouraged by her artist grandfather. His interest and enthusiasm made all the difference to the then budding artist. Her realistic, detailed style in oil is inspired by Colorado's enduring beauty and travel to locations throughout the United States and abroad. This travel provides new perspectives and wide-ranging subject matter for her paintings. She especially strives to convey the feel, uniqueness and sense of place in each work.Nickie has studied with numerous teachers with the most influential being Michelle Phillip, at the Classical Art Academy in Boulder Co. She has furthered her study by attending workshops given by nationally acclaimed artists. She is a member of the Broomfield Art Guild, Louisville Art Association and Oil Painters of America.She continues to pursue this absorbing, compelling medium and all that it can communicate.2019
