Having worked in Africa for one and a half years and more recently spending three years sculpting in Vietnam, Nicole’s heavily abstracted stone carvings reflect her deep love of primitive and native art, is an unabashed, raw and direct style. This powerful primitive tribal presence, imbuing her unique style, is the unmistakable legacy of her rigorous artistic apprenticeship in Zimbabwe. Nicole now lives in Melbourne and she is once again enjoying exhibiting all around Australia.
