OPEN STUDIO:     This weekend....

Nicola Slattery is once again opening her studio to the public as part of the "Norfolk and Norwich Open Studios" taking place across the county of Norfolk.  There is also the option of Violins and Cream Teas on Saturday and Sunday. Enjoy a great day out visiting various artists, see how they work, view recent works and maybe indulge in a cream tea with violins!

Entrance to all studios is free. Optional Cream Tea is just a fiver.

"Pastoral" medium: acrylic painting on wood - available

Artistic statement:          

"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 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.
