Artist: Nicola Paton

My name is Nicola Paton and I’m from Birmingham in the UK.

I re-found my passion for creating pieces of artwork eight years ago and dedicate any available spare time to my hobby, which gives me so much pleasure and fulfilment. My medium is charcoal and pastel, but my true love is charcoal, it allows me to re-create the emotions of the human face and capture the story behind the image. Recently I’ve been enjoying the challenge of experimenting with animal portraits which I intend to introduce more to my art collection.

Being a self taught artist has allowed me to discover my own individual and unique style. My inspiration comes from photographic images which I transform into one off pieces of artwork. My portrait vary from famous to the unknown and take between one to six months for completion. I’m always pushing the boundaries with my art and feel I’m evolving with each piece I create.

    the rendition of 3D is excellent, in some as if they are carved from stone…
