Born in London, Nicki Heenan moved to New-Zealand as a child. She studied Microbiology (MSc hons) at Auckland University, Art and Music. These areas of learning have formed an integral part of her work as an artist where the experimental methods of science are combined with an abstract visualisation of the landscape.

Nicki Heenan is an artist who has the ability to capture the fleeting moments of the Sea. She paints regularly on various windswept coastlines working with mineral pigments and watermedia or oil paint mixed with wax. The way paint is used intimates the rugged rocks and tempestuous Seas. For many years Nicki also worked as a musician and so brings a lyrical tone to her work with a strong rhythmical quality.  Last year Nicki was selected for Sky Landscape Artist of the Year 2016 and was awarded a scholarship to study at Ballinglen Arts Foundation in Ireland. Her work has regularly been on show as part of the Federation of Artists Mall Galleries Open exhibitions with the Royal Institute of Watercolours, Royal Society of Oil painters, New English Art Club, Royal Society of British Artists and shortlisted for Lynn Painter Stainers and Royal Portrait Society.
