Nicky is an artist and inspirational teacher who works creatively with clay and art media.
Her work reveals many influences, amongst these are folk art, mythology, theatre and Middle Eastern art as well as the beautiful coastline of her surroundings. These interwoven themes have all had a lasting impact on the style and content of her work, particularly her sculptural bas relief plaques.
Alongside these sculptural pieces, Nicky’s hand built and thrown decorative ware is constantly evolving and has become very collectable. She enjoys stretching the capabilities of the various clays she uses, as well as experimenting with glazes and surface decoration. Much of this work has its origins in coastal, nautical and seaside imagery.
These factors have all combined to produce a wide ranging body of work, varying in scale from ceramic jewellery to statues and encompassing a variety of techniques in her art works. Enquiries for bespoke pieces are welcomed.
