Dee Nickerson is a rural artist whose very personal style and broad appeal has won her many admirers and collectors. Dee Nickerson exhibits her original work at a small selection of galleries in Suffolk, Norfolk, Somerset and London.
Dee’s paintings are inspired by her gentle observation of the natural world around her remote home in Suffolk, and informed by her deep understanding of everyday country life through the changing seasons. By taking these references, she combines them with memories past and present along with a lifelong love of fashion and textile design, to create pictorial stories that lead the observer into a tranquil world.
Dee Nickerson includes elegantly stylised figures in her paintings, singly or in intimate conversation or activity, often walking with dogs, cats – maybe horses, across fields, through woodland or besides the sea. The changing seasons, recorded in their different colour palettes, the blustery wind, the cold of winter or the warmth of spring captured in these images make Dee a very special artist whose character shines through her work.
