Author name: Jill Harrington Nichols

Jill Harrington Nichols paintings reflect a deeply instilled appreciation for the sea, land and sky. “I paint from a place of gratitude. My painting is poetry; a lyrical composition of color and light. When I am painting I am in the moment, thoroughly present and enraptured. I experience a sense of peace, as well as an urgency to capture and share the moment. It is a privilege to paint.” Jill paints as much as possible and enjoys teaching painting and sharing her knowledge.
