About Nola

As you will see from this website, Nola Neilson has always had a passion for creating beauty.

The urge to create is second nature to Nola, and she followed this desire from an early age.

As a child, she would spend hours making doll clothes and creating paintings in any medium. Her Mom introduced her to sewing when she was eight years old. From there, she was passionate about creating anything from textiles. She made a dress for herself when she was only 11 years old.

After graduating high school, Nola attended the Mayer School of Fashion Design in New York, fulfilling her childhood dream of becoming a clothing designer.

Nola spent time in Community theatre, after raising a family of three children and running several successful businesses. She performed in both musical and dramatic theatre and won a Best Actor Award.

Nola’s serious pursuit of art began when she was in her early 50’s. Her success was born out of a huge desire to share the warmth of any subject she paints, as she is very passionate about the eyes. (the window of the soul) She starts her painting with the eyes and then paints the body around them. The results are stunning as you will see.

She hopes you enjoy viewing her art work with the same enthusiasm that she had in creating the pieces.
