Chrissy Nickerson ~ [21st century] Canadian
Chrissy Nickerson has been rendering the Canadian landscape from coast to coast as a professional artist since 2001; her featured works represent the Acadian marshes, the Ontario Bruce Trail, the wild rivers and lakes of the Yukon and the Alberta Rocky Mountains; she proudly carried home her watercolour paintings from kindergarten and she continues today, painting what she sees in nature and bringing home landscape canvases of exceptional craftsmanship; living and working in Canmore, Alberta since 2006, Nickerson’s greatest percentage of work gives a unique interpretation of the mountains, trees and skies near her home; bold use of colour and imaginative representation of nature are hallmarks of her work; policeman’s Creek is one of her favourite places to capture with oil on canvas; varied seasonal pallets of Alberta’s Wild Rose Country give Nickerson unlimited inspiration for her work as a landscape artist; locals recognize Chrissy with her orange wheelbarrow, as she transports her easel and paint box to painting sites around town
