Nicky is a Warwickshire based Artist, illustrator and interior Designer. She studied architectural technology and interior design at Solent University, receiving the CIAT Award as the highest graduating student in 2007. She has nearly 15 years industry experience as a commercial and hospitality interior designer, working nationwide on award winning branded and independent venues. 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 love of architecture and travel have resulted in stacks of sketchbooks documenting her journeys which provide endless inspiration for new work. 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.
Nicky is a member of both the Leamington Studio Artists, and Coventry and Warwickshire Society of Artists. This is her first year exhibiting with Warwickshire Open Studios, but regularly exhibits at private exhibitions at a variety of venues and is eager to get involved with local initiatives and other creatives.
