Artist of the Month: Maddie Nichelson

“If you make a mistake, just keep drawing and don’t give up. Sometimes, it can turn into something really beautiful.”
Maddie came to us last year with her sketch of a pear – the second pear-themed work featured in our 2016 Artist of the Month campaign – which shows ability beyond her years. The neat and simple sketch is shaped symmetrically and realistically, and Maddie effectively uses lines to demonstrate shading.
Maddie also impressed us with her understanding of what it takes to be a good artist. That quote above demonstrates a maturity and determination that will serve her well in all of her creative endeavors.
