Suffolk-based artist Dee Nickerson’s work is inspired by observations of the natural world, and complemented by her experiencing the effect of changing seasons on country life. Her ability to capture texture and combine it with gentle sentiment creates characters with intimate narratives.
“It is usually late morning when I start to paint, working late into the night, stopping for supper and, while it’s daylight, to gaze out of the window. During winter I settle by the fire and wireless in the caravan I share with a partner and three feline muses. In summer I move outside, under the lean-to. Combining memory, imagination and observations of the changing seasons, weather, people, cats, dogs and birds, I elaborate on little moments of ordinary life seen at home, from my bicycle in the local towns and villages, or on trips about East Anglia.”
