My name is Nichola Battilana. I am a formally trained artist and fancy-pants graphic designer. But really, that doesn't matter one pip and you don’t care about such boring things. (I don’t blame you.)

I am a socially awkward nit-wit with a flithy laugh who almost always says the wrong thing. In other words, I'm exactly like most other people.

About the mess making

I am absolutely passionate about making stuff. Whether it's upcycling, painting, mixed media, sculpture, assemblage, I jump in and create with positive, joyful abandon.

Much of my work is inspired by make-believe, magic, folklore, faeries, nonsense and nature. The world is abound with hidden treasures and chocked full of magic. I endeavor to capture those little bits of whimsy and convince other people to see them too, even if it is just for a moment.

One of my goals as a maker is to demonstrate impact of accesible art created with enthusiasm and without an ounce pretention. Don't get me wrong, I take my mess making very seriously... but I also think the art world could benefit from some glitter and humility.
