Liz's Website

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 the world.
