Previous to her artistic career Nicola worked as an Equine Veterinary Nurse for what is now Newmarket Equine Hospital. A profession that she believes has complimented her painting career. Anatomical knowledge, observation of animal behaviour and riding horses has given Nicola a deeper understanding of her subjects.
Various travels have given Nicola the fortunate opportunity to photograph and watch first hand many species of wildlife. Using mixed media and printmaking techniques in inks, pastels, acrylic paints, collage or whatever is to hand, her bold style lends a sense of movement and energy to her work.
Nicola was first ever winner of the British Sporting Art Prize for an artist under the age of 30 years at the Society of Equestrian Artists exhibition Christies London.
Her work has sold throughout the UK, and is in collections in Ireland, Israel, Spain, USA, Australia and New Zealand.
Much of Nicola’s work is now available as a greeting card or limited edition print on paper or canvas. For enquiries and bespoke print sizes or commission work please contact Nicola direct.
