Nicky trained as a Fine Art painter and has gone on to specialize in decorative painting and gilding in beautiful residential properties over the last 20 years. Her practice is informed by her keen interest in interior decoration, historic & traditional craft techniques and materials of painting and the use of colour.
She’s always looked closely at decorative schemes employed in period properties for inspiration. and is proactive in furthering her visual knowledge particularly of painted decorative schemes and wallpapers in historic properties. She is a committee member of theWallpaper History Society.
She offers an informed and imaginative response as to the style and aesthetic of the decoration that she carries out and enjoys the stimulation of working directly with her own clients but also alongside interior designers, cabinet makers and antique dealers.
In the last 8 years Nicky has come into her own not only as a skilled practitioner but also a decorative consultant. Recent projects have seen her advising clients on colour schemes throughout their homes, paint types and suitability, decorative wall finishes including wallpapers and the design and supply of fitted and free standing fine furniture.
