Nicky's Art

When I'm not teaching, I paint. I love to receive commissions to paint pets, and botanical scenes, such as gardens.

 

I strive to recreate the detail that you see in an animal's coat and in their eyes, while keeping the essence of their character. When I paint pets or still life images, I enjoy really observing, and recreating detail. When I paint landscapes I consider my style semi-abstract and impressionistic. In all my work you'll see that colour plays a huge role.

I use mainly acrylic paints, but I also enjoy the looseness of watercolours and inks.

In 2021 I was on the Sky Landscape Artist of the Year programme, as a wild card. It was a real privilege and a fantastic experience to see behind the scenes!

Pet Portraits

I thoroughly enjoy painting folks' best friends, capturing their likeness with my use of colour and attention to detail. I can work from a good photo, and I am happy to discuss particular features with a client.
