Nicole Allen

Painting, Booth 426

Nicole's artistic practice has in recent years focused on expressive, bold floral still life. This subject matter allows her to explore her love of colour and the random, graphic patterns she discovers therein. Her work is processed based, revealing the layers, movement and emotion that informed each paintings creation. After completing an undergraduate degree in Art History and working in the museum sector in BC, Nicole and her husband Jeff settled in Ottawa in 1997. Nicole is represented by Canvas Gallery, in2art Gallery and Wall Space Gallery in Ottawa. Her paintings are held in corporate and private collections within Canada, the U.S. and Europe. Nicole currently paints full-time in her studio as a member of The Loft Artists collective in Ottawa.
