This biography from the Archives of AskART:
In 2008, Trish Nickell left Paris, France where she had been living more than a dozen years.  Originally from Texas, she then moved from Paris to Portland, Oregon with her painter husband.  Upon leaving she had a retrospective of her landscapes tilted The Paris Years.

I am an observer... my environment, the view outside my window... The primary attraction is color. I isolate details of a scene with photographs and sketches - from these my paintings begin.

Nature is a sanctuary - a place for meditation and renewal. It has a spiritual presence that soothes, energises, and inspires. As an ancient Tao poem states, "...the sacred lies in the ordinary."

My paintings are a slice of nature, a slice of the sacred beauty that often goes unnoticed in everyday surroundings.

Modern western society pushes nature to the periphery in favor of human presence. My paintings push human presence to the periphery and remind us that we need nature - it calms, cools, and consoles.

Much of today's art is inspired by social problems. My paintings are inspired by nature. Like nature, they offer serenity and invite contemplation. The reintegration of nature into daily life offers us tangible solutions for some problems. The transcendentalist Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote,

"To the body and mind which have been cramped by noxious work or company, nature is medicinal and restores their tone."
