My name is Nicole Rouat and I live in Northern Ireland . I sign my art under the artist name N. Rouat.
My inspirations come from my multi cultural background and places I have lived in and travelled such as Africa, France, Sweden , Denmark , Portugal , America , Ireland and many more.
I love creating art it’s my way of expression , like liquid poetry storytelling about things around me, past , present and my visions .
I specialise in contemporary art , mostly working with acrylic and some oils and watercolours. I rarely use brushes as I find art is created by any tools.
. I've been creating art for 33 years as a hobby , until now I have decided to make this my dream.
Creativity flows in my blood as I worked as a Hairstylist and Make Up Artist for Exclusive Mayor Brands so working with brushes is nothing new to me . My favorite artist is Pablo Picasso , his work is fascinating because of the how he created collage and how he encouraged the mind the see things directly in an abstract way
At the age of 14 my first art work was on display at a school in Höör , Sweden.
You can see my artwork in a boutique in Banbridge , Northern Ireland, in a few homes in the South Of France and in Sweden.
My hope is through my paintings iIam able to capture peoples imagination and allow them to see beyond the "ordinary".
Enjoy this abstract journey .
