After Winter

Painting by Nicky Somerville

Date: Aug 1 – Aug 31Space: Foyer

Born  and raised in the Wairarapa, Nicky Somerville was a keen and competitive horse rider with a passion for art. Horse riding is behind Nicky now, but her passion for art remains.

In the 1970’s she was lucky enough to have tuition from a Dutch born artist Paul Nickolai.

Nicky has been painting in oils for many years now, largely commissioned works, but also for the art market and many more for family and friends. She tries to produce works infused with light and atmosphere as seen in nature. For this reason, she likes to paint floral studies, sourcing when possible material from local gardens.

Nicky and her husband have now retired to Havelock North, where she is continuing to produce both original and commissioned works.
