About Lee Nixon

Lee Nixon About The Artist
The Depiction of light, devised through vibrant colors is the essence of my work! And, being outside brings joy to my soul. It engages all of the senses; touch, smell, taste, and sight.
Now, I am in my studio. Splashes of colorful washes are applied to a blank canvas
. My palette is loaded with bright complementary colors. The sense of touch is enlightened through the application of modeling paste, tissue paper, or found objects, natural or man-made.
.
As a Contemporary Impressionist artist, I experiment with light through the usage of structural impasto acrylics. Creating beauty is a passionate enjoyment for me especially after
receiving comments such as; 'Your work brought peace to my heart', 'I felt joy seeing the paradisaic scenes!' The Bible provides me the greatest inspiration and influence in what I paint.

Meanwhile, I try to maintain a positive attitude and show empathy toward others
. I will continue to explore and create 'PAINTINGS OF PARADISE'.

A native of Orange County, Lee Nixon Jr. received his Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education from Virginia State University in 1975. He works primarily in acrylics for their versatility and compatibility with other media. His impressionist paintings reflect a need, care, and reverence for a serene earth, and the desire to share it with the viewer through color, pattern, and texture. His paintings have appeared in numerous galleries, including The Science Museum of Virginia, The Purcell Gallery at The Louisa Arts Center, numerous exhibitions at area hospitals, and The Arts Center of Orange.
