2020 Featured Artist

Lynette Nichols

My artwork is a collection of unique, original ink designs drawn free hand, without the aid of a pencil, ruler or compass. The detail of my work is a blend of patterns and designs influenced by various native cultures and a deep bond with the natural world. It is my desire that through my artwork I am able to share my personal expression of the intricate beauty of nature; if only to convey a new perspective of this amazing world we live in.

Born in Utah with an unbridled passion for adventure and a consuming love for the natural world. I was encouraged to follow my heart and my dreams. Through this journey, my life has been enriched by family and friends and a native culture that has shaped and molded who I am today. Now after twenty years on the Fort Apache Indian Reservation my life has come full circle back to Utah. Through the encouragement of others, I began drawing, blending two things close to my heart; native culture and the beauty of nature. 2018 was my first year showing my art, I was privileged to have been accepted into the St George Arts Fest, Park City Kimball Arts Fest, Jackson Hole Arts Fest, Sedona Arts Fest, Durango CO Arts Fest, Pearl Street in Boulder CO and other shows. I have been chosen as a featured artist for the 2019 Art and Soup Show held at the Salt Palace. My art was also accepted and shown 3 years at the Springville Art Show. I look forward to the opportunity to share my art with others and become more involved within the art world.
