Nicole Dickinson

Back to Main Categories


Nicole’s inspiration comes from her love of nature. She is especially attracted to the rugged countryside of the north of England and its coastlines. Her paintings depict moods and atmospheres created by the ever-changing English weather.

She finds oil paint a wonderful medium which brings depth, luminosity and transparency to a painting. Nicole also enjoys experimenting with acrylic, watercolour, collage and mixed media. She likes building up texture and depth with several layers of paint which she often partially rubs or scrapes back in order to leave some of the lower layers exposed. She likes using sand, which she collects during her journeys.

Her landscape paintings are mainly semi-abstract. Nicole likes to create works that are more suggestive and atmospheric than descriptive. The intention is to let the viewer search for meanings in her paintings.
