Brightwood Studio

Claudia Nice, a native of the Pacific Northwest, attended the University of Kansas, but gained her realistic pen, ink, and watercolor techniques from sketching nature.

She spent over 15 years traveling across North America for Koh-I-Noor/Rapidograph and Grumbacher as an art consultant, conducting seminars, work shops, and demonstrations at various schools, clubs, shops, and trade shows.  Her relaxed, informative method of instruction is geared to put the beginner at ease, and encourage the seasoned artist to new heights. 


Claudia has authored or contributed to over thirty successful books, including "Creating Textured in Pen & Ink With Watercolor."  This fully illustrated text book was not only a Nothlight "Book of the Month," but a best seller for F & W Publications.  Over 400,000 Claudia Nice books have sold.  Her art work has won numerous awards and is often found in leading art instruction magazines.
