I’m Nicole and I’m the Artist behind Nicole Barbara Arts.
Val Uchendu says, "An Artist is vulnerable and their craft truthful when he/she resists the desire to meddle with the wholesome expression of the soul". My art definitely comes from mine!
Over the last few years art has been both a cathartic release and an expression of sheer joy; it is a way for me to express myself, unapologetically. Art has given me confidence, connected me to women and men across the globe, and offered me the opportunity to show my daughter that it's never too late to find a passion or follow a dream.
Art has opened my eyes and encouraged me to journey into a world of opportunities I didn’t know existed, rewarding me with a fuller and richer life.
I'm privileged to be able to share that life and each story with you through my art.
Your taste in art will be dictated by your own life experiences, the era and culture into which you were born, your passions and dislikes - when you are drawn to a painting you are drawn to it because it speaks to a part of your soul.
So really, it's not just art you're buying - it's a soul connection!
Please take your time to explore my website and my art, please reach out should you wish to know any more about any of the pieces – they all have a story behind them!
