Welcome to the Website of Nicole Russell - Artist and Art Tutor

Watercolours and oils are Nicole Russell’s favourite media. She loves the vibrancy and transparency that the watercolours offer naturally, and the texture and richness of the oil colors. Strongly influenced by her fascination and passion for impressionism, her paintings portray landscapes and water scenes with strong contrasts and rich color. An established plein air artist, Nicole works from her studio in Ruby Bay, where she also teaches painting workshops.

Workshops and Tuition

Nicole offers a range of painting classes and workshops throughout the year, catering for beginners through to more advanced students. The emphasis of these art classes is personal growth and development in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Nicole is also an active member of the Tasman Visual Arts Plein Air painting group, and coordinates regular plein air painting sessions in and round the Richmond and Nelson area.

Recommendation for Nicole's Art Classes

I definitely recommend Nicole as a teacher. She is keen to share her knowledge and patiently explains so it seemed obvious! We were all very enthusiastic and fired to continue. None of my class wanted to stop!!
