"Art is always about meaning but the best art allows its meaning to be interpreted differently by differing individuals. Art comes from imagination and it is to the imagination that it should speak".
Nicola Slattery 2006
"I like art that makes feel better for having seen it"
Nicola Slattery 2011
"Part of me lives in my imagination and this is the part of me which creates art. Here I can create a better world of imagined moments dominated by peaceful mindful thoughts. By moving paint around I can create images from this private world and share them in the public world of reality. Art and imagination can help the real world to be a better place, not through some sort of escapism, but by inviting others to think and imagine it can be so."
Nicola Slattery 2013
