Nicole Verwey-Baker’s passion for all things creative springs from spending many an idle childhood hour sitting on the roof of her house sketching and painting Australian landscapes inspired by the Blue Mountains that she called home. She would scout about her household and surrounds for everyday objects and easy to obtain materials that could be transformed in to creative pieces to entice the imagination.
Her early adult years were spent traveling around Australia further sparking her desire to create and artistically represent the places and emotions that were evoked during her journey. Today, Nicole uses a wide range of media to create drawings, paintings, sculptures and collages inspired by ideas that surface through the subconscious mind and the effect they have on our everyday lives.
Her current focus is on recycled paper collage, her interest lying in creating new textures and forms from existing examples found in discarded publications. Many of these works can be found as illustrations in Head Space – Meditate your way to study success.
Nicole believes everyone has a capacity to create and that creativity can enable a person to transform their individual fears and insecurities through the solace and expression of art. She endeavours to translate this idea to her students.
Nicole currently lives on the Sunshine Coast where she works as an artist. Her work has been exhibited in various local art shows such as the Immanuel Lutheran College Art Show and the Maleny Art Show, and many pieces have found loving homes in private residences on the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Victoria.
