Nicky originally completed a Bachelor of Design and worked in the fashion industry before moving into creative production and events, delivering projects across Europe, Asia Pacific, and Australia, including the Opening and Closing Ceremonies for the Sydney Olympic Games.

She is constantly inspired by the ocean and shares a love of water sports with her active family.
When she isn’t playing in her art studio, Nicky is usually found walking on the beach with her husband or being a mum to her two busy teenagers and two fur babies.
