Elected to RCA 1984. Nicole studied Fine Art at Wolverhampton Polytechnic. She lived in Llanfairfechan at the foot of the Carneddau on the edge of the National Park.
Much of her spare time was spent walking the mountains of Snowdonia. The inspiration for her work came from these beautiful surroundings. She worked mainly in her preferred medium, chalk pastel, to capture changes of light.
