Nicola Shelton started painting professionally in her 40's and has enjoyed success promoting her work via her carefully curated Instagram page. Nicola is fascinated by light, colour and creating atmosphere, employing a subtle colour palette and applying layers of oil and acrylic paint to achieve the desired effect.

She is inspired by the sea, land and immediate environment, her travels and colour sketches in situ are the usual starting point for a piece, mixing colours until they are just right.  She works happily from her beloved cottage in the Cotswolds.
