ARTIST

Beth Nicholas began her journey while studying Textile Design at The University of the West of England. She graduated in 2004 and started her career in London where she worked in costume for film, television and theatre.
In 2009 she was offered a post as artist in residence at Wycombe Abbey school for girls, giving her the ideal opportunity over the following two years to further develop her potential as a fine artist.
During her time at Wycombe Abbey, Beth discovered the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi: exploring the beauty found within transience. She began linking rotting garments to abstract landscape paintings. This fusion of figurative ink drawings with the inspirational themes of nature and life have helped create a body of work that is both distinctive and breath-taking, working beautifully with contemporary interior design. 
On leaving Wycombe Abbey her work was taken on by the Fiumano Gallery in Notting Hill Gate, London and private commissions began to materialise. It was when the piece entitled ‘Catching my breath’ was displayed on the internet that Beth’s artwork went viral, trending on Pinterest for three years. This has opened doors internationally and led her to working with prestigious clients such as Dior, Christian Louboutin, Piaget and Bombay Sapphire gin.
