Hi, I'm Nicole

Slowing down, turning my attention inward, staring off into space - the things we were told not to do at school - seem to bring the best results for me in my creative practice.

I'm compelled to create my paintings by consciously connecting to a state of flow. Sometimes for the art.

Sometimes for the flow. 

I draw on memories from many years of living and travelling through Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific.  From the sights and sounds of busy souks, to the sweet scent of Damask roses on mountainside terraces, my senses are flooded with the delights of adventure and exploration.  


I playfully capture this on the canvas, celebrating the wonder of other countries and cultures, as if I'm travelling these paths again, reliving and articulating my experiences through abstract, expressive mark making and the tactile quality of paint.  

Nicole Fearfield Art

[They are] "Dynamic, playful representations of life, expressed through colour and energetic swipes of paint"

With intention-filled mark making and a harmonious colour palette, I apply the paint energetically, building layer by layer in a call and response manner, expressively and joyfully painting from the inside out.  

Exciting marks, harmonious colour, depth and spaciousness are all hallmarks of my finished pieces.

“Painting playfully and expressively delights me. Much like breathing, it makes me feel alive and is a necessary part of being.”


Inevitably, the outcome for artist and viewer alike, is discovery and delight.
