About the Artist
For 35 years, REES NIELSEN harvested stone fruit on the family farm with his cousins in California's San Joaquin Valley. He began painting at the request of his wife, Riina, around 25 years ago. After her passing, Rees moved to Indianola, Iowa to take an active role in the lives of his grandchildren. He has had poetry, prose and visual art accepted in many publications in the US and the UK.
