Mixed Media Artist: Cathy Nichols

Hi readers! Happy Tuesday to you! I recently discovered the art of the very talented Cathy Nichols, when perusing Pinterest and thought you might enjoy seeing some of her work too! You may or may not know she also designs stencils for StencilGirl, and actually used the Camping Stories stencil to create her “Night Under the Stars” art work. Peruse even more of her lovely artwork on her site.



Cathy began her career as a young artist in Venice, CA where her encaustic work showed on trendy Abbot Kinney Blvd. and charmed collectors such as Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson. After moving to New York in 2005, Cathy continued to exhibit her work in the prestigious Enormous Tiny Art Show at the Nahcotta Gallery in Portsmouth, NH and in galleries in New York, Virginia Beach and Asheville, NC. In 2011, she co-founded The Firefly Gallery in Northport Village to feature the work of local Long Island Artists, and in 2012 The Lamantia Gallery unveiled her larger encaustic pieces at New York Art Expo. For the past three years, Cathy has also been the featured artist for the “Modern Vintage” Elements line of handbags produced by Boulder, Colorado company, Sherpani. She also designs cards and stationary for companies such as Graphique de France and American Greetings.
