Artist Statement
for suzie nichols
I recently got back into drawing and painting when I retrained as a garden designer. I have attended classes in life drawing and water based oils as well as general drawing and painting classes. I draw and paint for relaxation and mainly for myself- my house is filling up with paintings I cannot bear to part with! I am open to occassionally taking commissions.
