British b. 1957
Dee Nickerson was born in 1957 to a farming family near Wymondham, Norfolk. Dee found pleasure, challenge and escapism in making and looking at art and images from an early age. With support from friends and family she soon became an artist and is now a full-time painter.
Inspired by her love of fashion and day to day life in the countryside, Dee’s style is unmistakable. Her interesting approach to work creates charming visual narratives with playful scenes and intriguing characters.
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 Nickerson a very special artist whose character shines through her work.
To create these wonderful pieces, Dee will observe her surroundings on her daily cycle ride or perhaps on walks here and there and then go on to produce her unique work from scenes she has noticed.
