"I love to walk along deserted beaches collecting shells, where the ebb and flow of the tide constantly changes the scene, and where fast moving clouds pass by revealing vivid blue skies one minute, and amazing storm clouds the next. Every way you look is a different view, changing from day to day, tide to tide and season to season. Here I feel at one with nature and these things are a constant source of inspiration."
Nicholas beautiful pastel and watercolour pieces capture the beautiful blues of a summer sky and the contrasting sands of a Cornish beach which so many who explore the region have come to love. Her work displays a boldness as well as a contrasting fragility which pay a perfect homage to the serene yet dramatic scenes along our coastline.
"Not knowing how it may turn out is the very nature of watercolour, as with one misplaced brush stroke, it could be spoilt in an instant. For each painting is on a journey with me, until I am finally satisfied with the image before me. "
TO SUBMIT WORK TO THE SUMMERHOUSE GALLERY
Here at The Summerhouse we love to support both established and new, up and coming artists with an affinity to Cornwall. We do recieve a very large volume of submissions, and although we take care to view every artists work, it is very difficult to discuss work with every single artist who gets in touch.
Please send us a selection of work which you feel best represents you, along with an artists statement and a list of other galleries which represent your work if applicable. You can email this to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to our address, with contact details (email or telephone) which we can reach you via should your application be successful.
We look forward to hearing from you.
