“From Cottage to Palace, there is always a place for mural decoration; it can transform darkness into light; the humdrum into the exotic; it can lift the spirits of the meanest room and visually transport the occupants into another world”

Graham Rust, Muralist.

Nicola Kirkman

Since finishing Art College in Manchester I have lived and worked in the Cotswolds area. After a good grounding in the decorating trade, for the last five years I have been stretching my wings and applying my creative skills to the more expressive area of wall murals, painted backdrops and furniture revamps.

With a sharp eye for detail, a feel for colour and a sound understanding of composition, I am able to take on board and deliver my clients’ specific requirements to produce artistic pieces, which lift any surface and give it new life.

My work ranges from, but is by no means limited to, commercial properties, freelance work for interior designers to private properties. I can work in various styles which can vary from just one wall panel, to entire rooms or single pieces of furniture

I am bursting with ideas and am willing to tackle any job you may have in mind. I am happy and able to travel to the four corners of the earth to carry out my work.


"Nicola has worked extensively for us in our home for the past 5 years. She has transformed several rooms into magical aquariums, jungles & sweet shops. She has risen to the challenge of every project from technical sign writing to the Union Jack, from peaceful Buddha's to general redecorating work, her talent is endless & world-class. She's a lovely person & it's a pleasure to have her in the house. She is capable of anything & deserves to have an outstanding career full of exciting commissions."
