Nicola Mills

Nicola Mills is a trained 3D designer and artist. Most famously known as Mrs Maker, she works in many different primary schools, teaching art and transforming school environments into vibrant creative spaces.

Obsessed with observing patterns and faces, her art reflects this playful passion. She can’t help but transform everyday objects into characters. Shoes become birds, bread into dogs and pyjamas into llamas. Animals are a continuous thread in her work – pet portrait commissions have become a regular part of her artist journey. She evokes emotion using earthly tones and embracing the organic nature, which occurs when applying ink to the fabric.
