Nicky Jack is a freelance artist and illustrator living and working in London. From Tower Hill to Hammersmith Bridge, whether famous landmarks, Notting Hill mansions or more modest Victorian terrace houses, Nicky has won acclaim for her distinct style. Her style is right up my strata!

Having left Bath Art school with a Fellowship, she has drawn her inspiration from a wide range of sources.

A quirky cheery style permits throughout her work, likely the reason she was spotted by Cath Kidston. Nicky was the inspiration behind the brands famous London print.

Whilst cheery, her work also shows deep technical ability as she is renowned for picking out the detail in architecture and captures the movement and atmosphere of a scene with a quirky Lowry-like style.

With a degree and fellowship in printed textiles from Bath School of Art, Nicky Jack came to London and progressed her design interests, working part time in a design studio whilst selling work to boutiques and galleries in the UK and further afield. She taught art for a number of years at The House Schools group and The Hall Hampstead which she adored. Having always loved painting pictures for friends and family she made the exciting decision to leave teaching and give her art career a good go whilst pregnant with child number two.
Her main objective was to try out being a working at home Mummy doing what she loved most.
Her work slowly graduated from the kitchen table to a modest garden shed where she can close the door and work efficiently without too much distraction. She has created illustrations for a number of brands, including Cath Kidston, Fortnum and Mason, The Birley Group and has worked of a number of Private commissions which have led to illustrating for everyone from the Royal Family to St Paul’s Cathedral.

Whether it be an intricately detailed house portrait with a difference or a busy little favourite scene, I love to producing something unique and tailored. I am equally happy to work from a detailed brief or to help provide the inspiration.
