Jill Nichols’ painting explores both the earthbound and outer expanses of our divine cosmos. She has received awards from the U.S. Department of the Interior, National Park Service and Connecticut Office of the Arts. An active participant in the art communities throughout Connecticut, she has served as vice-president for the Connecticut Plein Air Painters Society and Valley Arts Council and exhibited at the Lyme Art Association, Carriage Barn, Greenwich Art Society and Lyman Allen Museum. Her artwork, “Phi,” celebrating the divine feminine was installed in the Vatican Observatory Museum.
As a teacher, Jill leads painting workshops in her home state of Connecticut, USA, Italy, and online. Accustomed to teaching students at all levels, Jill has a way of instilling confidence and encouraging students to take risks with exceptional outcomes. Jill’s demos and talks will reveal the secrets of creating a successful painting.
Jill will be working with each painter individually to enhance their painting practice and in achieving individual goals. We will investigate historic and contemporary approaches to painting techniques.
