Capturing the essence of the NSW South Coast
Nicki has won numerous prizes with her paintings including the open art prize at the Goulburn Workers Club Traditional Art Show in 2013. The winning painting was aquired by the Goulburn Workers Club and was an acrylic titled "A matter of Perspective" featuring a tug at Eden Wharf . Her paintings have been finalists in the Shirley Hannan Portrait award and the Basil Sellers Art Prize.
Although formally untrained, Nicki became adept with professional computer design and associated programs and was able to incorporate her natural drawing ability in her work. Workshops with well recognised Australian Artists, such as Lucy and Barry McCann, Hermen Pekel and Joseph Zubukvic at Charles Sturt University’s “Mitchell School of Arts” as well as John Wilson in the Blue Mountains, assisted with Nicki’s painting development.
