About the Artist: Violet Nicklen
US Air Force
Vietnam and Gulf Wars
Violet Nicklen is an independent professional and award-winning artist who began exploring the arts in the 1970's. She put her pursuit of art on the back burner while serving 30 years in the United States Air Force. Since retiring in 2001 she brought her passion for the arts forward again by returning to college and obtaining art related degrees.
As an eclectic artist, she explores various mediums working in traditional and nonrepresentational designs or melding both. "Life experiences and emotions play a big part in the colors I choose and the subjects I paint." Her personal philosophy is that art is the essence of the soul, but the true meaning of a work of art can be defined in many ways as it is interpreted in the mind and by the eye of the beholder.
American, b. 1950, Maywood, California. Based in Georgetown, Texas, USA
