This year has been an amazing year for me in terms of my art reaching more people. I was interviewed by David Weatherly of Fox 8 for the Roy's Folks series and invited to participate in the Roy's Folks Annual Arts and Crafts Show to benefit the Salvation Army. If you would like to see my interview, follow this link http://myfox8.com/2015/08/24/turning-the-ordinary-into-the-extraordinary/#ooid=U2YnE2dzpEsaopfStmrLTmt_KYpU4wPN. Just try not to laugh too hard at my southern accent!
Here is a picture of dad and I on Fox 8 to promote Roy's Folks a week before the event. My dad is a natural!
Just a quick sneak peek at the set up before the doors open for Roy's Folks. Dad and I were able to set up next to each other. We had a lot of fun. Sold a few things. But the best part was just spending time with my dad. I am grateful to have grown up with a craftsman. If he didn't know how to do something, he found a book and learned. I learned so much from him.
I'm Jennifer Nichols, a mixed media artist from North Carolina. I enjoy capturing the essence of nature through a variety of materials. I incorporate found objects such as strainers and bottle caps into my work. I am drawn to these items but it is also important to me to do my part to protect our environment by keeping things out of the land fill.
