Nicola’s original works are very textural with a layer of collage for added interest
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 wildlife in a new and exciting way, whilst retaining an element of realism. Nicola doesn’t have to travel far to see a diverse abundance of wildlife on her Norfolk doorstep constantly evolving through the season’s, boxing hares, silent barn owls and leaping deer. Precious moments she endeavours to capture within her work. Nicola works primarily in acrylics with layers of collage, acrylics give her speed to work spontaneously, to give movement and energy to her work. 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.
