Nell Nicholas


June 2023


Nell Nicholas is a visual artist and musician. Her practice revolves around drawing, collage and paintings which she uses to investigate the relationship between people and their surroundings. Usually painting with oils on a large scale, she creates scenes rich in details and layers. Every object on the canvas seems to have its own story – artworks, furniture, ancient vases, tapestry – everything tells the story of someone who isn’t represented in the paintings.

Nell is from Wiltshire. She graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art from City & Guilds of London Art School in 2018. She also studied at Falmouth University and University College London.
