We mourn the loss of Joel Nichols, who passed away in 2021 from complications of the Covid Virus.

Joel, a Navy veteran, was known as the “dot man” because of his pointillistic style of art.

Said Don Bristow, “Joel was among the kindest of men I’ve ever known.  I met him at New Life Worship Center, and I encouraged him to come and be represented by Valerosa Designs & Gallery.  He came, and in addition to his art he brought with him a deep voice, warm smile and always encouraging words.”

Joel is remembered for his unusual style of art and his great love for people.
