Nicola draws inspiration from the Northern Beaches landscape, often choosing oil pastels for their ease of portability for outdoor painting. There is a rawness and an immediacy to Nicola's work that comes as a result of the use of these oil pastels. Partly from being a young mum with limited time, and partly from the enthusiasm that Nicola has for the Australian flora and fauna, Nicola's work provides a beautiful sense of energy and vibrancy.
The work on offer here is printed from originals onto 20mm plywood and are 200mmx200mm.
I love them.
