Ms. Nevius has a
passion for figure drawing.

paintings have a rich translucent quality, with many glazes and layers like a
watercolor. The Davis Educational Art series recognized her talent and focused

work by such recognized artists as
Andy Warhol and Lowell Nesbitt".

figures that sometimes appear with an inherent grace as black silhouettes with
subtle definitions on sensuously colored backgrounds.” “Technically, it
takes the most subtle yet disciplined control of color and material to create a
mixed media statement as sensitive and beautiful as Thia Nevius’.”
