Elise Nicely Fine Art
 Elise Nicely is a water media painter whose favorite subjects are landscapes, seascapes, and flowers.  She has been drawing and painting since she was in the third grade and Santa brought her a Jon Gnagy  Learn to Draw art Kit.
During her years as a second grade teacher, Elise spent evenings and summer vacations taking painting classes and workshops.  She took lessons from many well known watercolor artists and teachers.
Mrs. Nicely incorporated art into her lesson plans to encourage her students to explore ideas and issues in a variety of ways.  After retiring from teaching, Elise began painting full time.  She paints in watercolor  to achieve transparent effects.  She chooses to paint in acrylics when she wants to achieve a thicker, more opaque look.
Elise Nicely has been in art shows in Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.  Her paintings appear in private collections throughout the Mid-Atlantic states.  "My best friend from high school purchased six of my paintings in 2017!" she exclaimed.  "I was honored and thrilled!"
Elise Nicely was born in Keyser, West Virginia.  She lives in Potomac Falls, Virginia with her husband Gary and two exuberant dogs, Kodee and Oreo.  Elise is member of the Loudoun County Sketch Club and various art associations in several states.
