Nicola is originally from Scotland and was trained in Fine Art Printmaking at Grays School of Art where she gained her honours degree before moving to Australia in 2005.
She has been building an arts career as the co-owner of The Artists Nook, an art gallery in Guildford, exhibiting regularly and working with government bodies, schools and small businesses to deliver murals and public art. She has won multiple awards for her printmaking and painting.
Working from her home in the Avon Valley she is surrounded by the natural environment which informs her practice. Her artwork is filled with native flora and fauna with art deco and figurative influences. She works mainly in relief printmaking and watercolours, often combining the mediums. Her current practice concentrates on still life and imagined landscapes filled with recognisable flowers and birds.
I have been building my arts practice steadily over the years and have now moved into selling successfully through Art Lovers Australia and Bluethumb. You can read my most recent Feature Artist article for Art Lovers Australia
My painting ‘A Spoonful of Sugar” was selected for Scotty’s kitchen on The Block 20022. Limited edition prints are available here.
