Nicky grew up in Kent and has recently moved to Sussex. Her art journey started after taking a step back from a busy working environment due to her ongoing health condition. Nicky has a rare heart defect called tricuspid atresia and has gone through a number of operations, which impacted her development in her earlier years. Painting would often be a choice hobby where she could embrace a sense of peace.
Nicky is heavily influenced by creation and is drawn by natural textures. She enjoys experimenting with block colours and uses her palette knife to blend layers of texture across her work.
Nicky's paintings reflect her interpretation of life experiences and memories of the natural world put onto a canvas.
