Nicola Durrant, Mixed Media Artist

 

I trained as a textile designer at Manchester School of Art in the 80’s but have spent most of my professional life living and working in New Zealand as a production designer within the television industry.

 

Returning to the UK six years ago, my husband and I discovered the beautiful village of Sibford Ferris in Oxfordshire and decided to make this our permanent home. Being surrounded by fabulous countryside reignited my passion for drawing and I began sketching again after an absence of many years.

 

The artwork shown on this web site is mostely mixed media (watercolour, gouache, acrylics, ink, oil sticks and pastels). ¬†However, ink is my favourite medium because of it’s unpredictable and slightly random nature.

 

I hope you will enjoy looking at my work as much as I did creating it!
