Nicola Atkinson paints using acrylic on canvas & wood and photographs each artwork. These images are prepared in the studio and translated onto fabric and digital media. This approach became useful for testing the strength of each concept. Allowing one to look at the work from a distance that provides a clear focus.

Her interventions have always been both large and intimate in scale, have changed community identities and formed active relationships with the built environment. Never fixed to one place or a single institution, they provide the blueprint for new ideas in art-making.
