Personal Statement

Trained as a scientist, Nicola turned initially to photography, then over three decades to painting, sculpture, installations, textile work and in some cases, combinations of all of these elements! Her work examines the structures of life and feeling; physical, emotional and psychological. Her science taught her to look beyond the immediate reality of things to understand the deeper connections and organisations of our world. Her art practice gives feeling and shape to her life experiences, including the joys and traumas of childhood, and more recently the impact of cancer. These combine in her eclectic and startling art work; hard to define but genre defying and remarkable in all respects. Her work has been exhibited at numerous galleries and exhibitions. She has an extensive following of collectors, buyers and enthusiasts. Lately her work includes the creation of Sunday Vest; gowns, frocks and woollens, designed and made with quiet love and careful attention. Based in Chilgrove, Nicola runs Courtyard Studios.
