"Growing up in a very remote part of south Norfolk during the 1960s meant I quickly learned to use my imagination. Making and drawing has always been part of my routine, as with wandering about and observing.
The human’s relationship with nature and in occupation, incidents observed or from memory, are made into painted stories. With a limited palette, I like to paint little “collections” with a ‘theme’ of incident, pattern or colour, that might also describe the time of year they are painted, or current experiences." http://deenickerson.com/about/statement/
"Dee Nickerson was born in South Norfolk in 1957. From an early age Dee found pleasure and escapism in making and looking at art. Inspired by a love of fashion, situations and at the time horses, influenced by, among many, Munnings,
Hockney to Jackie magazine she soon decided she really only wanted to be an artist.
After studying at Great Yarmouth College of Art and Design she carried on painting, making clothes and other items to sell at fairs and a street market in Norwich. In 1987 she joined Liberty Retail, first in dress fabrics and then the fashion departments. In 1991, she left fashion and started painting again.
In her paintings, Dee explores themes of living in the countryside and activities she enjoys such as sewing, hanging out the washing, cycling being out and about or alone pondering life. In some ways her work is less about life as she sees it but a mirrored reflection to it." http://www.primaveragallery.co.uk/our-artists/351/21/nickerson/
