I gained my Honours Degree in Fine Art Printmaking from Gray’s School of Art. I now live in beautiful Western Australia.
The landscape and nature of WA inspires and is the focus of my work which you can find on Bluethumb View Nicola Cowie art on Bluethumb
I own The Artists Nook in Guildford, a gallery and shop with Kat Ferguson. We work as an artist team delivering workshops and public art throughout WA.
I have exhibited throughout the UK, Australia and Indonesia and have work in numerous private and public collections.
I hope you enjoy my work.
A little about my work…
Living in Australia and South East Asia has influenced my work greatly. I am surrounded by such diverse and beautiful plants and wildlife and that appears increasingly in my work. My process is very organic and comes from sketches of things around me which translate into drawings, paintings and prints.
In my printmaking practice I work with wood and linoleum plates carving them with specialist tools before inking them up with a roller and putting them through a press to get the ink onto the paper. The marks the tools make on the block are unique to the practice. It is a thrill to pull a print as there are always unexpected marks natural to that material.
