Ann Hulce Nicholson
Ann Hulce Nicholson was always able to see the world from an artist's point of view: the colors, the composition, as well as the beauty in the smallest details that others just passed by. She was born and raised in Michigan, yet she spent her career in New York City. While primarily self-taught, Ann has honed her skills with Denis Ponsot as well as numerous watercolor artists online. Some of these artists are known internationally as preeminent in the field. She learns something new every day and is inspired every day. She now splits her time between studios in Brooklyn, New York, and Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Flowers are nature's expression of beauty and a call from the ether for you to stop and look. Georgia O'Keeffe said, "Nobody sees a flower - really - it is so small - we haven't time - and to see takes time." A flower, a garden, can be a single bud in a vase, a pot on a stoop, landscaped in a yard or botanical garden, or a simple wild bloom at the side of the road. You just have to really see and pay attention to the beauty that is all around you.
