A native Huntsvillian, Jodi shares studio space with her artist husband, David Nuttall, at Lowe Mill. In 1979, she was encouraged by a professional artist teaching a painting class at the University of Alabama at Huntsville to get a degree in fine art and paint for a living. Instead, she decided to work and just paint on the side. Painting was always there in the back of her mind and, after nineteen years at a local company, she quit to paint full time.
Jodi's current passion is painting landscapes and still lifes with soft pastels on “Pastelbord.” She also dabbles with abstracts and takes commissions. The immediacy velvety texture of the soft pastels, along with the directness of moving the pigment around with her fingers, are what she likes most. An oil painter for several years, she got tired of mixing paint and mediums to get the desired colors and consistency. To see more of her work, click here.
Class size for the Pastel Landscapes workshop is limited to 10 people, and pre-registration is required.
