Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Nicola Welten

Nicola is a local expressionist artist with a love of exuberant, colourful palettes. Inspired by a love of flower gardens and landscapes, her art reflects emotions and sensory experiences rather than a literal interpretation of a scene. Her painting process starts in an abstract fashion, which brings an underlying energy to her work and helps relay her excitement about the surrounding colour and beauty. She likes to capture those feelings in her paintings and share that sense of joyfulness with the viewer.
