Hello! I am Arden Ellen Nixon, and I will be your charmingly awkward artist this evening. It is my sincerest wish for my paintings to find the beauty in the dark--as with my extensive "Make-Shift Angel" series--the silly in the sublime, and the humanity shared by the creatures and the world around us.
Legend has it that I could draw before I could walk. While I don't know about that, I do know that I bought my first set of acrylics at thirteen. I found my starter set at a hardware store, of all places, on clearance for $13.75. "Why not?" I thought--little did I know!
When not painting, you'll find me pursuing my love of ancient history, watching soccer--Come On You Spurs!--with my husband, and visiting whatever zoo or museum is available at the time.
