Nicola Cairns Paintings
Nicola Cairns is an Edinburgh artist born in 1975. A talented artist from an early age, Nicola was encouraged to develop her natural apptitude for art by drawing and painting regularly for family, friends and local competitions. Focusing on art throughout school, Nicola developed her flair and decided to further her chosen vocation by attending college. She specialises in figurative work of detailed nudes, latin dancers and jazz and blues artists, which are becoming highly collectable. She currently has work on show in Liverpool, Paisley, and Edinburgh. She also has many works in private collections throughout the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Ireland, Montreal and in The United States.
After leaving school she studied Illustration and Media Design at Edinburgh's Telford College completing the 3 year course. However, realising that was not the artistic direction she wished to go in she decided to persue painting and drawing as her chosen course.
