About Eva S. Nichols:
Eva Stramer Nichols emigrated from Denmark to the Monterey Peninsula, CA in 1988. Inspired by the natural beauty of the California landscape she soon started painting. The luminosity of watercolors totally captivated her, and it has become her favorite medium.
Soon she started exhibiting and Eva has evolved into an award‐winning watercolor artist and instructor, best described as an "impressionist colorist" inspired by nature. She strives to convey a mood and a feeling with her color choices, not necessarily to match exactly what she sees, but colored by what she feels. You can always recognize her use of bold colors and unique compositions.
In 2009‐10, Eva was an artist in residence at Mendocino Art Center, which started her career as an art instructor. She has a unique ability to inspire students to explore their creativity and grow artistically. Eva is now residing in Truckee, CA where she has continued her career as a sought‐after instructor conducting workshops and classes both in the US as well as abroad.
