Nicola Warner

Nicola paints vibrant, contemporary landscapes, working primarily in soft pastel and oil pastel with mixed media. She is fascinated with colour and texture and how it changes with the light. A Red Beach local, Nicola finds her inspiration in beaches, big skies and beautiful places.

Nicola takes great delight in passing on what she knows to others, helping them to find a style they love to work in and pointing them to other pastel artists who might inspire them. The endless variety of styles which can be achieved with pastels makes them a wonderful medium to work in.


Nicola’s paintings have been in many exhibitions, including being selected for the Pastel Artists of new Zealand (PANZ) 2021 exhibition. In 2012 she was the recipient of the annual PANZ scholarship and studied with multi award winning pastel artist Tony Allain. Over the years she has also enjoyed researching, experimenting and attending workshops to learn new techniques from other pastel artists.
