Nicolle Aston - Artist
'Morning Light Clematis'
Hello and Welcome ...
Thanks for being here. I hope you are able to find a moment to slow down, take a breath, and enjoy what you see.
The purpose behind my art is to draw attention to nature - to encourage us to give her more than a passing glance.
Nature is the almighty backdrop to all of our lives and we can be uplifted by the beauty that surrounds us, even in the most ordinary of circumstances.
As children are enchanted and mesmerised by nature, but as she becomes familiar we can forget to marvel at her.
When we live fast paced lives, lost in thought, in our momentum to be somewhere, or to be someone, we march past nature’s miracles and magnificence.
Nature has mastery over creativity and is infinitely intelligent. I love photographing the natural world and many of my paintings magnify the subject. I aim to bring the diverse beauty of blooms, berries, foliage, fruit, and birdlife into people's homes to remind them, even for a fleeting moment, that life is colourful, complex, layered, delicate and .... beautiful.
