About me: I'm Cathy Nichols, and I'm an artist, teacher and author of the book Storytelling Art Studio and guide for my two core courses: Create Your Own Oracle Deck and Painting Modern Expressive Flowers. On January 1st, I will also be reopening my club: Joy of Painting.
Here is a little bit about my art: I am to capture the sense that nothing is perfect -- we have challenges, heartaches, changes and losses -- in our lives, but there is always a way for joy and hope to emerge. Torn fragments of paper from my life and travels form the textured backdrop for the bright flowers and birds I paint. These fragments are like our memories and experiences. Each is unique, layered and filled with stories.
COLOR has always been my gateway to emotion, and using color in an imaginative way helped me to align my soul with the art I could create.
I hope that my work and teaching encourage you to live your life in color and joy as well!!
Thank you for joining me here! xo, Cathy
PS -- I want to share with you that TEMU, Alibaba, Amazon and Ebay are NOT authorized sellers of my oracle decks. The decks you find there are counterfeit. On behalf of artists worldwide, please do not shop on those platforms -- the designs are usually stolen. Just a friendly PSA.
