Life Drawing

Art inspired by the human form, was at the core of Neilson’s training as a visual artist. Throughout her career, she has frequently returned to life drawing, to portraiture, and to figurative art.

The artist gets great pleasure from the practice of classical drawing, and still teaches these foundational skills to young students, as the core for strength and confidence in contemporary art whether abstract or figurative.

Always, Neilson’s art is inspired by human connections and by communities.
