About Me

Hi, I am Nicky and have been painting for the last 35 years. Art is my number one passion.  Along my art journey, I have had the privilege of teaching others to find their creative and visual voice through art classes, workshops, and retreats.

My Inspiration

Drawing inspiration from the beauty of nature around me enables me to capture special moments in time in my artworks. I combine elements of lost and found edges with realistic accents in my subjects.
I am always searching for beautiful things to paint that will allow one to experience Nature in its truest form. Beauty is all around us, we just need to take time to appreciate it.

My Art Journey

Ever since I was a young girl I had a passion for drawing and a fascination for colour. I started my art journey 35 years ago. I have never looked back and look forward to the many years ahead.

“Art is an extension of me, and am delighted to share it with the world”. Nature is very close to my heart, the very elements which make up this wonderful planet -the animals, birds, flowers, etc…

My philosophy is to make the best of each and every single day, to make memories, and enjoy the journey of life.

My Art Career

My hobby/passion for art turned into a career at the age of 28. Alongside me painting and developing my artistry, I have taught art to children and adults for the last 35 years. During these years I was fortunate to be selected by Golden to be trained abroad and become a Golden Educator.

Then Covid arrived in 2020 and life for many changed. I then decided to focus solely on my art and start my own Gallery both online and walk in. I have been exhibiting my paintings in various galleries and solo exhibitions since 1994.
