Chrissy Nickerson is an artist who draws her inspiration from the landscape. Her work celebrates grandeur and simple beauty while drawing attention to issues relevant to the way in which we live, concerning issues of habitat, natural resources and environmental planning. Her paintings bring awareness to the importance of proper research, consultation and thought as to how land is sold, planned and developed to maintain and nurture our urban forests, established parks and wilderness.
Seizing opportunities to explore new landscapes she paints whenever she travels. Frequent subjects are the Canadian Shield of her birth province of Ontario and the majestic Rockies of her mountain home in Alberta as well as the Atlantic coast of Maine where she summers.
