Being born and raised in Florida makes Ed Nickerson partial to Florida landscapes as his main interest of painting. Ed attended Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, FL from 1967 to 1970. After many years of working for others, he decided to retire from it all and pursue his passion in painting. He tries to spend most of his painting hours outdoors, but also works in his studio. Impressionism has always been his interest in his approach in his painting. He works to capture the always moving lights and shadows of the day. Oil has become his choice of medium. Ed lives and paints around the Emerald Coast.
