In recent Years, her artistic flair and passion for art has bought her back to painting, drawing and illustration.
She enjoys painting/drawing all subjects, but is always drawn to local architectural subjects and streetscapes. Her drawing style is detailed but ‘sketchy’, influenced by both the art and architectural worlds. Similarly, her work with acrylics show her free and energetic style.
Due to her background, Nicky’s artistic work often transcends into the commercial world and she regularly takes on commissions for mural work and window signwriting.
Her love of architecture and travel have resulted in stacks of sketchbooks documenting her journeys which provide endless inspiration for new work, however Covid-19 and the resulting lockdown has bought her inspiration back closer to home and She now delights in local streetscapes and landmarks.
The main medium currently used is pen illustrations with watercolour/ink colour washes.
Nicky also produces digital illustration and her mural work is in acrylics.
