Nicki SaundersArtist & Tutor
About Nicki Saunders
I am a self-taught artist based in Norwich, Norfolk specialising in watercolour as I find this medium can be seductively subtle yet exciting and eye-catching. Early on in my painting career, I favoured flower painting. Being able to capture a likeness and radiance of a flower was inspiring and captivating to me. Over the years I have been drawn to many subjects and now find it hard to find a favourite theme. As my painting subjects have changed, so have my painting styles. Instinctively I am a detailed painter with some pieces almost achieving photographic realism but I also love the freedom of loose work which has an abstract feel to the finished work.
I have been painting for over 30 years and teaching through various means including private classes, one-day workshops, visiting art groups as a guest tutor and running local Adult Education Courses. During my time at Adult Education, I achieved a PTTLS teaching qualification.
I also work with various other mediums, including Acrylic paints, Acrylic Inks, soft pastels, watercolour pens and pencils, graphite pencils, inks and more recently, Brusho Crystals. Adding these mediums to watercolour paintings can create amazing results.
