Suzanne Nicholl — Painter
Hailing from Wales and living in Worcestershire I have a love of landscape, the tangled hedges, rolling hills and turbulent coastlines. My art expresses a personal experience of the landscape, it’s harsh wildness and organic beauty, interwoven with the industrial and historical influences and landmarks. I create paintings with energy, movement and a sense of what it feels like to be a part of the landscape, rather than standing apart and looking upon it. My technique is expressive, intuitive and bold, using contrast, colour and texture to draw the viewer in and around the image. I complete many layers within each piece, using acrylic paint and mixed media to capture reflections and responses to the landscape, creating a meaningful history within the image.
In 2020 I completed an Art and Design programme at Malvern Hills College and confirmed a love of painting. My new life as an artist is now full of experimentation and artistic exploration as I embrace the creative highs and lows of art making.
