Amy Nicholls is best known for her vibrant landscapes showcasing water and sky and the unique reflections between the two elements. It is the delicate detailing of each piece that allows her unique style and perspective to stand out and be recognized. AN works in acrylics, mostly on stretched canvas, and sees each piece as a new opportunity to push her artistic capabilities further.
Her themes focus around Canadian landscapes of places she has lived such as Georgian Bay and the Qikiqtaaluk region of Baffin Island. However not limited to landscapes, AN has been drawn to strong images of animals, children, and family moments.
Her work is influenced by The Group of Seven Artists, most notably Emily Carr and A.Y. Jackson, as well as the master, Picasso. She strives to create cohesion between realistic imagery and impressionist techniques and perspective. She sees the wonderous beauty of nature, and pulls that magic out for the audience feel like a moment in time is encapsulated solely for their enjoyment.
Amy currently lives in Manotick Ontario. She and her husband are separated, but co-parents their son and the ever popular Inuit Sled dog, Otis.
