After completing a BA (Hons) Graphic Design and Advertising, specialising in Illustration Graphics, Nicola’s career began as an Illustrator. Her career started when she joined Advocate Art and her Illustrations have been used for many different products from Children’s Books and Greetings Cards through to products such as mugs, placemats, fine art prints and CD covers
Her passion for experimenting has enabled her work to continually evolve and Nicola quickly discovered a talent for painting with oils. Her work uses movement and colour to create abstract, atmospheric pieces that convey the mood of the moment.
Nicola’s inspiration comes from everyday things, from flicking through a magazine to purely observing the people and nature around her. Working from her garden studio, by the coast in East Sussex, where she lives with her husband and two children, provides her very own creative space where she can happily experiment with colours and textures, explore new techniques and materials and best of all, make as much mess as she likes!
“It’s such a great feeling to be working in an industry that I have always wanted to be a part of. There’s nothing better than to be able to walk in to the gallery and have your exhibited work admired!”View Full Bio
