NICOLE DONEGAN 'Into Dreams' original painting
acrylic on canvas
520 x 1010mm
Nicole Donegan is the artist and founder of the Like Poetry brand.
Nicole finds inspiration in the Australian landscape, hand-picked floral arrangements, poetry, colour and story-telling.
Nicole’s intuitive approach to painting allows the paint on the canvas to form a feeling or moment. The painting process often studies life’s truths, both joyful and melancholy.
During the Arts process, Nicole’s most precious moments are painting en plein air in the Australian bush and later, being able to translate the magic of the land in paintings, cards, ceramics and homewares.
Nicole studied a BA (Media and Communications) and is a professionally trained Art Therapist (AD, AT). Nicole has also had an extensive career in Marketing and Business within the Arts, Fashion, Media Industries as well as the Education Sector.
