Me and my painting, "Wishing You Were Here"

What are grits, for example?  And Kudzo? Is it a plant or a martial art? Do I really need to throw out my red lipstick?   Is the nearest Ikea really 2 hours away? These and other questions will surely be answered as I embark upon this new adventure.

Hi, I'm Cathy Nichols. Thank you for joining me here as I share my art and inspiration with you. Right now a lot is happening in my life. My family and I are moving to  Asheville, NC to embrace the funky art scene in this thriving city.  I am a native New Yorker who has primarily lived in NY and Los Angeles for the past 15 years, so this move is at once exciting and disorienting.

My rollicking band of pilgrims: Singer/Songwriter/barkeep/philosopher-, Jay, and my children Annabelle & Nicolas. Kids,  I'm sorry you have to leave your friends in New York. But rumor has it there is some really good ice cream in Asheville.
