Nicola Slattery is a prolific and well known painter and printmaker. She has exhibited her art work regularly for many years in solo and group exhibitions across the UK and beyond. Her passion for creating art has been shared with many through various art courses and painting holidays. Although most of her time is now committed to painting she continues to run a small number of weekend art courses and the occasional art holiday each year.
Nicola Slattery is a contemporary artist working with imagination as a painter and printmaker who lives in Norfolk, UK. Her paintings are in public, private and corporate collections around the world. She also tutors a small number of weekend art courses each year near her home in south Norfolk.
Painting with acrylic on wood or printmaking using the drypoint and collagraph technique, Nicola Slattery creates figurative narative images from imagination. Her paintings have enjoyed wide audiences and favourable reviews. They have been included in many selected exhibitions, eg: the New English Art Club, Royal Society of British Artists and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
"My daughters play violin in their rooms and sheep graze in the field opposite my Norfolk home. My mind wanders and comes upon a girl playing violin for an appreciative sheep. The seed of an idea germinates and leads to a painting titled "Pastoral". This is how "art from imagination" works for me." Nicola Slattery
The Fosse Gallery in Stow on the Wold will be holding an important solo exhibition of Nicola Slattery's most recent paintings. The exhibition is called "Human Nature" and opens on 19th April 2015.
Please contact the gallery via the Exhibitions & Galleries page to request an invitation to the exhibition opening.
Nicola Slattery is well known for her distinct style of figurative - narrative paintings. She also has a background in printmaking and has introduced many to the "Collograph" and "Drypoint techniques which she started teaching to other artists back in the 1980's. Since then many have taken up these simple and direct approaches to printmaking after discovering the techniques on one of her weekend art courses. Original limited edition prints by Nicola Slattery can be found in galleries and have been reproduced in several printmaking books.
Nicola Slattery runs several popular weekend art courses each year at a lovely venue on the Norfolk and Suffolk border. All art materials needed for the weekend course are included in the course fee.
