Nicky's background in textile and fashion design has a clear influence on her work, from the topics she chooses down to the highly textured handmade papers and vibrant coloured inks she uses to present her quirky drawings.
Nicky has a unique and contemporary approach to her subject matter, her love of drawing blends seamlessly with the surface textures and overlaid inks to produce delicate and well observed portraits of cats and dogs, and studies of shoes, hats, handbags, corsets, stockings, lingerie, dresses and chairs.
Always doodling or taking photographs Nicky is permanently collecting images in readiness for the next idea to emerge. She is constantly experimenting with media, subject and scale.
When not at work in her attic studio Nicky loves to be outside, whatever the weather. She is a keen mountain biker and loves to ski and snowboard.
