The Art Menu, an online gallery dedicated to promoting the works of emerging and established Dallas Artists, announces the addition of Artist Roxie Nichols to their roster of elite local talent.
The thick, impasto canvases of Roxie Nichols demand attention through the use of her vibrant, energetic colors and tactile paint manipulations. Her skillful and sensual painting style is alive and expressive; loose and gestural, capturing even the expressive nature of a single flower petal. Whether applied to abstract landscapes or still life compositions, her passion is evident.
â€śFor as long as I can remember, I have gravitated towards self-expression and eventually found true self-expression through art and painting. When I am in my studio working I literally transcend into another space and time. No matter what is going on in the world outside my studio â€“ this is the place I want to be in, an amazing soul nurturing space.â€ť - Roxie Nichols
Nichols is originally from Dallas and lives in Lake Highlands. She studied under the influence of Lizbeth Richardson from 1998-2003. Liz was a member of The Royal Academy of London, a master colorist and expressionist artist. Roxieâ€™s favorite artists whom she has studied for years include: Sergei Bongart, Ramon Kelly, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Georgia Oâ€™Keeffe, Nicholi Fechin, and Harley Brown just to name a few.
The Art Menu represents an elite group of Dallas area artists, each bringing their own unique talents to the table via their diverse mediums and subject matter.
They provide a much-needed service for artists and the artistic community at large by discovering exceptional local creative talent as well as providing an online platform that publicizes and markets their work. The works of these artists then become available to the larger artistic community in the form of limited edition giclĂ©e art prints and canvas prints.
The giclĂ©e process requires the original art on canvas to be professionally scanned and digitized, assuring the highest level of quality reproduction.
“Our website helps artists put their work out into the public eye,” said David Hobbs, Owner of The Art Menu. “People buy art because they relate to the piece and the story behind it. We want The Art Menu to be a platform for the artist to share his creativity and his authentic voice.”
