Nicola is a multidisciplinary artist.

Nicola’s practice focuses on using the materials she works with as a storytelling tool. Creating wearable pieces that have a strong connection to their wearer, embedded within each piece is a wider story that works to raise a deeper awareness of social issues that we encounter in our daily lives. Nicola produces her work from new biomaterials or re-uses existing materials. Her final major project dispelled negative ideas about the beauty and desirability of Black hair, celebrating and elevating Black hair by utilising the hair itself to create a collection of headwear. Nicola’s pieces are designed to facilitate a multisensory experience, carefully considering how the wearer will feel, experience and interact with each piece.
