Nicola graduated from the City and Guilds of London Art School in 1993 with a degree in Decorative/Fine Art.
Variety and experimentation are the main emphasis of Nicola’s work. She is continually striving to represent life in a new and exciting way, whilst retaining an element of realism. Nicola work’s primarily in acrylics with layers of collage, acrylics give her speed to work spontaneously, to give movement and energy to her work. Images are built by applying layers of collage made of different colours and textures. She has always been fascinated by the way different textures affect the paint, the emergence of different layers, revealing or hiding, drawing you into the painting so you always see something different.
Nicola creates her original compositions by applying layers of paint and collage of differing colours and textures. Experimentation and variety are key to her work, which she creates with speed and spontaneity, providing the piece with movement and energy. This new collection features an enchanting set of images by Nicola.
Nicola regularly exhibits at Cambridge Contemporary Arts and The Red Dot Gallery in Holt. She now has a publishing contract with top publishing house Collier and Dobson which have resulted in a series of limited edition prints, New prints will released in February 2019.
