Caversham based artist Nicolette Carter will shortly be featured on the latest BBC 1 Series of 'Home Is Where The Art is' presented by Nick Knowles.  

 Nicolette is a painter who has been making, exhibiting and selling her art for over thirty years since graduating from West Surrey College of Art and Design.

Nicolette will be appearing on the program on Thursday 23rd   July at 15.45 You can also catch up on BBC I player.

 During the filming of the episode, Nicolette travelled for hundreds of miles across the UK and was filmed at the T.V. Studio, in her own painting studio and at the stunning home of the potential art buyers. She competed against two other artists to win a commission and during the finale of the show you will see which of the 3 artists won the final challenge to complete a unique and personalised artwork.

It was a once in a lifetime experience for Nicolette and it was a great pleasure to meet so many wonderful, talented and fascinating people including the other artists, the home owners and the team behind this entertaining, highly creative and heart-warming programme. Nicolette says: “I love the ethos of the programme…. which makes art accessible, not just to the buyer, but also to the viewers, by giving an insight into how art is made and how artists and art lovers can collaborate to produce beautiful, diverse and, unique works of art.
