About the Artist

Originally from Thailand, Nuch graduated from Poh-Chang College of Arts and Crafts in Bangkok with a specialty in fabric design. She worked for five years as a textile designer before moving to Florida.

Now living in Naples, Nuch has started a silk painting studio. Her work carries a consistent tropical theme, floral still lives and landscapes with vibrant colors and intricate patterns. 









Artist's Statement

Living in Naples gives me the opportunity to surround myself with tropical flowers and plants that remind me of my home in Thailand. My garden is a part of my studio and inspires me to paint daily.
