Nicola graduated from the City and Guilds of London Art School in 1993 with a degree in Decorative/Fine Art.
Continually striving to represent life in a new and exciting way, whilst retaining an element of realism, Nicola works primarily in acrylics and builds her compositions by applying layers of paint and collage comprising of different colours and textures. Variety and experimentation are the main emphases of her work, and acrylics allow her to work with speed and spontaneity, and provide her work with movement and energy. Nicola has always been fascinated by the way different textures affect the paint – how the emergence of different layers, revealing or hiding, draws the onlooker into the painting so that something different can always be seen.
Nicola regularly exhibits at Cambridge Contemporary Arts and The Red Dot Gallery in Holt.
