Bay of Plenty Garden and Art Festival


Nicola Welten

Nicola Welten, fuelled by a passion for vibrant hues, creates joyful semi-abstract floral and landscape paintings from her home studio. Her artistic process begins with bold abstract marks and sweeping colours, revealing intention as the work unfolds. Unapologetically employing fluorescent and transparent colours, she paints with speed, preserving the dynamic energy within each piece. A frequent contributor to the NZ Art Show in Wellington, Nicola’s work consistently captivates audiences with its vivid and expressive allure.
