Featured Artist - Discover Jersey Arts Website April 2004
"No matter the medium, color is the trademark of this artist."
Courier Post Discover Jersey Arts March, 2004
Liz Nicklus is a mixed media artis. She began her artistic career
as a traditional oil painter and watercolorist, but later became
captivated by the art of mosaics. Her work in mosaics and her
painting now go hand-in hand. She pushes the limits of the media
she chooses to include in each individual work of art. Her mixed
media mosaic murals consist of intricate patterns and symbolic
objects unified by complex color relationships. Sometimes abstract,
sometimes objective, the work is always deeply personal.
Nicklus studied at Stockton State College, the Ridgewood School
of Art, Fleisher Art Memorial, with Pat Witt at The Barn Studio
of Art in Millville, and with Philadelphia mosaic artist Isaiah
Zagar. She was Discover New Jersey Arts featured artist in April
2004. She is past chair and one of the founding members of the
Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts in Millville, and is
on the Board of Directors of the DaVinci Art Alliance in Philadelphia.
Together with Millville artist Carl B. Johnson, she is a partner
in Millville's Independent Artist Studio. She currently teaches
mixed media, painting and mosaics throughout Philadelphia and
southern New Jersey, and was recently a guest instructor at the
Studios of Key West, in Key West, Florida. She is heavily involved
in numerous projects within Millville's Arts District. In 2009,
she will be collaborating in Philadelphia in a mixed media public
art project sponsored by the prestigious MuralArts program. Her
work can be seen in public and private collections throughout
