Nicola was born in Dundee and graduated from Grays School of Art in 1997. She has exhibited in galleries across the UK and France and is now the Head of the Art Department at Perth High School.
Nicola uses BIC crystal ballpoint pens, and a meticulous approach to drawing to layer colour and tones. Working on antique ordnance maps, old recycled envelops and other vintage papers she creates extraordinary portraits of familiar everyday objects, inspired by her memories of growing up in Dundee.
On herself: ‘I hope that my artwork does credit to the stories told by my Dundonian Grandmother which are a continuing inspiration to me.’
