Meet the Artist...
Marc Nickles, originally from Cambridge, Ohio, has made Zanesville his home for the past 15 years. In the early 70's, he was inspired by Lesley Cope to pursue his art. Marc is self taught using the media of oils, watercolors, acrylics and pen and ink. His portfolio of work is displayed at his home studio and at Gallery G.
His main interests are children and people but enjoys painting animals and Amish scenery as well. His drawings of children can take up to four months due to the size, the permanency of the ink and detail. To avoid mishaps in his work, he works short sessions to avoid rushing the artistic process. All of his subjects are photographed by him so he gets a better feel for them, especially the personalities of children.
Marc's main intent is to capture the mood, resemblance, and the moment of innocence rather than to reproduce an exact likeness of a subject. You may contact this artist by clicking below or email him here.
