Nicki is a talented, popular and versatile South Cotswolds painter who also teaches in the region and internationally.


She is well known for her wonderful results using unusual techniques and mixes of media, some of her own invention. In this case it's acrylic, pigment and flax ink. 


The combination of materials, a limited palette and a myriad of marks perfectly conjures up these atmospheric scenes of wet meadows and waterlogged fields.


    Nicki’s paintings are primarily influenced by surface and substance. Colour is rendered in multiple layers, using glazing, and infused with dry pigment, oil, cold wax or in watercolour. The results are often surprising and inventive, creating beautiful and intriguing paint and texture effects.


    Nature is her greatest muse:

    “The surface textures and patination within the landscape have inspired me to develop working with a range of materials that can best describe these attributes. I work with oil paint, cold wax and dry pigment in layers often scraping back and pouring paint to create paintings with a depth of colour and texture.”


    Her art studies have formed an integral part of her work as an artist where the experimental methods of science are combined with an abstract visualisation of the landscape.


    Born in London, Nicki went to school in Haverford West, then Aberystwyth, in Wales. She later moved to New Zealand where she gained an MSc from Auckland University. Art study was undertaken in NZ and Australia which gave her a foundation in Classical painting and creative methods. On moving to London in 2005 she studied at Goldsmiths University, UCL specialising in Cross Arts Workshops.


    Nicki works from her home studio in Wiltshire and teaches workshops around the world. Her work has been exhibited in major galleries in London, Australia and New Zealand.
