Hi there, my name is Nicole Barros, formally Nicole Martin. I have been painting for 30 years, having started in acrylic and moved on to oils but found my true flair and passion in watercolours. I also love graphite, pastels and coloured pencils.
I have had some wonderful teachers and the opportunity to work in some amazing studios over the years. Originally from NSW, I began my formal training at Julian Ashton Art School Sydney.
I like to work on an array of different subjects. Although I have a great passion for wildlife, I enjoy painting and drawing feathers and fur.
My style is realism, I am not sure yet whether that is my personality or due to the large volume of commission work I do, most request are picture/photo perfect.
My paintings are housed all over the world in various businesses and private collections. Over the years I've sold many paintings and have won numerous awards.
Art Classes, I am currently teaching watercolour painting, drawing in graphite and coloured pencils for beginners and beyond.
If you have further questions or would like to request a commission please do not hesitate to contact me either by email or phone. firstname.lastname@example.org or 0414 299 737.
Thank you for taking the time to read my statement.
