My Art Philosophy

Nancy Nichols Photo
My background experience in Fine Art and Graphic Design continue to give me valuable insight that I apply to my work.

I have lived and worked in San Anselmo, California for 25 years. As an artist, I enjoy exploring new art territories and finding unexpected ways of looking at the same old thing. It is my belief that a creative eye can make just about anything artistic . . . my imagination rarely sleeps.


“We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements in life, when all we need to make us really happy is some thing to be enthusiastic about.“
~ Charles Kingsley

My Website Design Philosophy

I focus on the Power of One and believe your Website is an unlimited territory for you to be seen. It should not be left to run on its own. Artyists all have a certain "look" and the Internet offers a world-wide platform to communicate what uniquely represents Who We are and What We do. It is my goal to bring something artistic and personal into all of the design work I do for artists.
