Nicola Green rose to prominence as a portrait artist in the late 1990s. She earned international acclaim for her keen ability to draw out the essence of her subject; whether observing an individual or exploring wider social and cultural stories.

Working in a variety of mediums, Nicola seeks to reveal human stories by creating her finished work from extensive primary material. Her work has been acquired by numerous public and private collections, including the Courtauld Institute, London, the Library of Congress, Washington and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
Nicola Creates her portraits in  three-step process. The first stage consists of understanding her subject; taking her own photographs and sketches as well as sometimes using newspapers, magazines and collected paraphernalia. She Then reduces Profile, gesture and context to establish the essence of her subject. Nicola focuses on colour and composition in the final portraits, whether using oil paint or silkscreen, to distill a story that continues to reveal itself over time.
Nicola collaborates closely with her clients during the commissioning and making of the portrait. This collaborative process results in Nicola's unique and deeply thought-thought work.
