Everything I create is inspired by nature. From landscapes to animals, I find ways to express my love for all that I see.
Landscapes come into two categories.
Landscape Memory Paintings are based on a visual and emotional memory of a place I have visited, either from my childhood or in recent years.
This is a very enjoyable process and can be an excellent way of spending a couple of days in the Art Studio.
Plein Air Paintings are a very new element of my art practice. This has come from the recent COVID restrictions and the need to get out of the house and breath in the fresh air. I look forward to my Plein Air Painting Adventure. You can follow me on Instagram @nicolacrookart
Animal Life Paintings are split into three subjects.
Endangered Species paintings are thought provoking and beautiful.
British Wildlife is on my doorstep. I am blessed with access to fields, forests and lakes. That is where I get the best views of the vast array of wildlife we have here
Pet Portraits are a joy to do. I have met very lovely people along the way.

I do several commissions in the year, ranging from landscapes to pet portraits. I am more than happy to chat with you about any paintings you may have in mind.
