‘I find working as an artist is to be like a wizard; the magic wand is my brush.’
Nicola is a painter of portraits and a variety of other subject matter. Preferring to work in oils, Nicola’s portrait commissions have included people from all walks of life.
Based in West Suffolk, bordering Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom, Nicola relocated with her family to the countryside recently from London and is enjoying a quieter pace, devoting time to her art.
In selecting the right artist for a portrait there are many different aspects to be considered. Art is never an exact, direct representation of a subject and the result on canvas puts on view the essence, energy and personality of the artist as much as the person sitting.
My aim is to make the entire process an intriguing, enlightening and exciting encounter, finishing with your ultimate unveiling of something magical to treasure for generations.

“Dear Nicola, the portrait has gone down a storm at Forest and I absolutely love it. You are so clever!
You captured all the things we talked about and I am so grateful and so impressed. It matters a great deal to me that the artist is an Old Forester. I hope you’ll be able to come in and see the portrait once it’s hung in the Dining Hall.
Thank you again – I hope you gain more commissions out of this – the Chair of Governors was really taken with your work. You are very talented and are clearly pursuing the right path for your career!”
Sarah Kerr-Dineen, Warden, Forest School
“A truly talented artist, who among her work, has painted an incredibly life-like, detailed painting of my father.
He, as well as the whole family, were so completely amazed by his portrait. To quote him in his own words:
Without much assistance from me, apart from posing for a few photographs, Nicola got to work - and before very long, uncovered the portrait. I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised by the likeness and, indeed, impressed by the colourful and delicate brushwork. It really is me!”
Gerald Coldham (and daughter Katie)
“We are just now opening the picture you lovingly made for Samantha... Wow! It is amazing - Samantha loves it!
Thank you so much for your time, effort and amazing talent.’
