"I paint primarily with oils in both abstract and landscape, enjoying a balance of both. My work is accentuated by a mixture of color, texture, and shape, and is inspired by the beauty of both nature and people, including friends, family, and other artists."
Svetlana Nelson creates expressive and interesting pieces that match the needs of collectors and art lovers. At 61 she knew what she wanted to do with her life. In Lowe Mill, Huntsville Alabama she took art classes at Chuck Mathews' studio. By the time she finished classes, she knew that her area of expertise was painting. Her work was selected to be in many art exhibitions and awarded with 4 certificates of Honorable Mention, including from Art Olympia, Tokyo Japan. Her paintings featured in a wide range of subjects such as the magazine “Art is Spectrum”, “Artavita”, “Circle”, the website of Art Olympia, Tokyo Japan and much more. Her favorite element to experiment with is color and texture. She enjoys seeing how a colorful painting can add brightness to any room. The most rewarding part of being an artist is reading comments on her website, she gets from viewers and buyers because then she knows her art touches them in a most positive way.
