Art Classes with Nicky Stevenson

 

Following a Ceramics Degree, she worked in theatres, on films and in Television for a number of years as a prop maker and designer. She worked on plays including “High Society” and “The Coventry Mystery Plays”, on “Brookside” and the film “The Blonde Fist”.

 

Nicky has always painted and drawn and in 1992, following a move to Holland, started to paint and draw full time. She now has a portfolio of over 70 limited edition prints and original works. Her work is available in different mediums and on home wares.

 

Nicky believes you have a moral duty to remain optimistic and is known as a marvellous colourist. She paints in Ecoline and draws in pastel, conte crayon and graphite pencil. All of her work has a 3 dimensional feel to it as she sculpts her imagery with a paintbrush or pencil on watercolour paper. Birds, fish, flowers and reptiles feature in her colour menagerie portfolio. Her work is unique, a visual feast, full of colour and narrative and reflects her sense of the ridiculous. Inspiration is found in everyday life, literature and other cultures.

 

Nicky has taught in Adult Education, Colleges of Further Education, Primary and Secondary Schools and run workshops for teaching staff. Her method of teaching is akin to that on a Foundation Art Course. Students are encouraged to try different media and approaches in their work, to find their own style and the media that suits them best. The workshops are fun, friendly, innovative, creative and good for well-being.
