Chrissy has participated in self directed artist residencies as well. The Banff Centre in 2008 and the Ted Harrison Retreat in Carcross, Yukon in 2010.


Nickerson's work is large, strong, painterly, bright, and interprets the Canadian landscape tradition in a fresh way. She sees studying the environment as an artist as her cultural responsibility. Her role as an artist is to seek out beauty and authenticity in our surroundings, to share it with the community at large, and to communicate the importance of our natural resources and habitats. By documenting such places through her work, she hopes to enhance our nations prosperity, our pride in Mother Earth, in our water and in our lives.


When viewing Nickerson's work, one sees the landscape as a whole through a broader sense of environmental awareness; Canadian Culture.


Chrissy Nickerson is a career artist of 38. She is an investment today and in the future of North American art.
