Nicola Warner has lived in rural Suffolk since the 1970s and has also spent much time in Cornwall over the last two decades. Having sketched and painted since childhood, her love of art led her to a three year period of running her own gallery in Framlingham, Suffolk. Drawing her inspiration from the vastly different shorelines of both Suffolk and Cornwall, she also benefits from the natural forms and botanical shapes she encounters in the rambling country garden outside her studio.
Frequently using ‘found’ tools rather than conventional brushes, Nicola’s contemporary abstract art is frequently highly textured and many pieces feature her signature gold leaf in amongst the mixed media and collages to which she is drawn. Conversely, some of her smaller ‘lighter’ pieces feature home-made inks and watercolours. Intuitive, and using a varied colour palette, her work appeals to both corporate and private collectors.
