Nicola Slattery is a prolific and well known painter and printmaker. She has exhibited her work regularly for many years in solo and group exhibitions across the UK and beyond. In March 2015 she was elected to the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA).
Her passion for creating art has been shared with people of various ages and backgrounds. Through her tuition on many art courses and painting holidays she has introduced beginners and other professional artists to new ideas and techniques.
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.
"Daisy Chain" is one of over thirty recent paintings included in Nicola Slattery's 'Human Nature' exhibition at the Fosse Gallery, Stow on the Wold, England. Exhibition continues until 9th May.

'Garland' currently exhibited with the Fosse Gallery
Nicola Slattery works with imagination, feelings and emotions as a painter and printmaker. 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 rural 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 chosen for selected exhibitions including those with: 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 March 2015
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. "The Printmakers Cat" and "The Artful Hare" are both available from publishers Mascot Media.
