Acclaimed painter, Dee Nickerson captures the humble qualities of county living in her figurative artwork. Dee grew up in rural Norfolk and developed an interest in art and making things from an early age. Working in acrylic, her work is influenced by the countryside where she lives and her interactions with it. When speaking of her work, she said, "Some of my characters are based on an imaginary self. It’s not necessarily me exactly, but it might represent how I might like to feel at that moment. I reach out to other people by painting moments we all share."
