About Nicola

Nicola is a professional artist from South Norfolk. 
Well known for her dramatic yet intricately detailed pastel paintings she shows her comprehension and mastery of the equine form. 

Nicola's knowledge and understanding comes from her lifelong love of horses and she counts herself extremely lucky to have owned a few horses and ponies throughout her life. In fact her studio is in a converted stable block which used to house her horses not so very long ago.
Whilst horses remain her absolute passion, she also loves to paint dogs, fulfilling many commissions.

Nicola is represented at The Red Dot Gallery in Holt, North Norfolk where she has a permanent collection of paintings to be seen.
She is a member of The Society Of Equestrian Artists and has exhibited at Sally Mitchell's Gallery in Nottinghamshire and with the Norfolk and Norwich Art Circle where she is a member. She completed a very successful month at The Bell Gallery in Bungay, Suffolk last September an is currently exhibiting there until 1st June.


 Nicola has always had a natural affinity with horses, and having been brought up in a tiny Norfolk village, surrounded by beautiful countryside and plenty of animals she started drawing and painting at an early age. She has been lucky to have had a few horses and ponies and so is familiar with their temperament and conformation. This shows in her portrayal of these fabulous beasts in her intimate pastel paintings. She sat on her first pony at two years old and from that moment her complete and utter obsession began. "There is nothing like burying one's head in a horse's neck and breathing that familiar smell to make all things right in the world."


Although Nicola is predominantly an equestrian artist, she is often asked to paint dogs. This she loves, and is as familiar with dogs as she is with horses. Generally working from photographs which she likes to take herself, Nicola will work in pastels to the owner's preference. She likes to meet her subjects first so as to be able to familiarise herself with their temperament. On occasions where it is not possible to meet her subject she likes to speak at length to the owners to gain some knowledge of their special friend, again to learn about their character.

A few of the lovely comments from happy customers........

You brought my best friend back to me. Her eyes follow me and I feel the comfort that she blessed me with for all of the years that I was lucky enough to have her in my life. Thank you Nicola.

I have never been reduced to tears simply by walking past a painting before! The soul that you capture in your horses' eyes is breathtaking! How could I not buy one of your beautiful paintings?!

Nicola brings such life to her horse portraits and the eyes are just captivating. It is as though you can see right into the animal's soul!

Never have I been so completely in love with a painting as I am with the portrait that NIcola painted of our beloved horse. The emotion that I feel when I look at it is truly amazing. Thank you, thank you Nicola!
