Nicole Spata


‘My practice is greatly influenced by nature and all its creatures. I strive to not only capture a true likeness to what I see but also experience and feel when fully present. When in the process of creating, I instantly return back to that moment and enjoy another go at it—reminiscing all sensory and expressive properties of that moment in time. Working in oils allow both accuracy of subject and personal perspective. This medium’s free-flowing qualities allow no holding back! Whether painting or sculpting, color and simulated texture have always been the elements/building blocks I most often use as the backbone of my composition.’ -N. Spata
