Nicola McLean is willing to accept commissions

I'm an artist from the north of Ireland, currently living in the far north of Scotland. Inspired by all animals, the wonder of nature and the sometimes surprising beauty of the urban landscape, my paintings tend to include elements of all three to varying degrees, all of which I re-imagine with a vibrant palette and a vivid imagination.

I work predominantly in acrylics – paints, inks and spray paint because they dry quickly and give me the vibrancy that I love. I’ve found that regardless of the subject matter I am quite often drawn to include a little whimsy or an element of surrealism in my work and use as colourful a palette as possible, perhaps to counter the seemingly increasing darkness of the world we live in.

As well as selling online and taking commissions, I also take part in local exhibitions regularly and am delighted to have paintings hanging in private collections all over the UK as well as in America, Canada, Australia, China and Europe.
