Nicolette lives on ten acres in country New South Wales, Australia, with her husband, horses, dogs, cat and chooks, a large vegie garden, close enough to town to work, and play.
Her children have left home and now it her my time to fly!
She is a graduate from the Australian National University, NITA.
I have been selected as finalist in many national painting competitions.
Living in a rural area in New South Wales, Australia, Nicolette finds the natural elements affect her life profoundly, especially the colours she uses in her work, reminiscent of the colours of the drought she has been living in for the last seven years. She use fibres I find locally to make work. An environmentalist by religion, most of her work demands thought from her audience because the sources are different from the mainstream, she is informed and highly influenced by art history and contemporary thought.
