Nicola completed her Art Foundation course at Bath Academy of Art in 1981. She went on to do a degree in drawing and painting at Edinburgh College of Art between 1981 and 1985 and stayed on in Edinburgh to do a Postgraduate painting and printmaking course.
During this time Nicola was awarded the Andrew Grant Bequest Travel Scholarship to Venice and the following year received the same award but this time to Paris. Since leaving college Nicola has worked as a professional painter and illustrator for many years, exhibiting all around the UK and in particular Scotland.
She works in a variety of mediums and her delicate, highly detailed pictures are always fresh and inviting. Her design work has been purchased for the Royal Academy of Art and also for Harrods, John Lewis and other similar retailers both in the UK and internationally. D’Arcy Gallery are thrilled to be publishing Nicola’s first collection of Fine Art Prints. Nicola lives and works in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
