Nicky Ward Art - mixed and recycled media artist

Nicky uses coarse texture, strong colours and composite image techniques to build complex collages from discarded materials and embroidered fabrics. Oils or acrylics are often used to highlight specific areas of the artwork. As an architecture student, Nicky often creates art inspired by the structure of the urban environment, with her images reflecting both the buildings and her emotional response to them. Nicky is currently working on a project to engage young people in architecture through creative workshops in schools and youth groups.
