Testimonials for Art Mentoring

“I was an ‘A’ Level student applying for a place on the Foundation Course at Falmouth University, trying to produce a project for this very competitive course, but was feeling overwhelmed.

Nicola gave me the support I needed. Her ability as an artist inspired me, and her patience and praise as a teacher helped me come up with some great, original ideas. Nicola gave me the confidence to produce some of my best work which secured me that interview and got me that place on the course.

I went on to study Costume Design at Bournemouth Arts University and have built a successful freelance career since I graduated. My latest role being Head of Costume at Giffords Circus”

“Working with Nicola was a real insight: her enthusiasm was contagious and her willingness to experiment with new and different materials was really inspiring. I was applying to do the Foundation Art Course at Manchester University and needed to get an interesting portfolio of work together. I learnt a lot from the sessions with Nicola, namely the confidence to explore and play with materials in an unencumbered, completely non-self conscious way. We used a combination of traditional and more unconventional media, incorporating such things as fabrics, found materials, and unusual pigments. The results were absolutely fantastic. I now have a really unique body of work, and I look forward to working with Nicola again.

I got my place at Manchester University, followed by a degree at Glasgow School of Art”
