Hi, I'm Nicola Welten, an expressionist artist based in Tauranga, New Zealand.
I love creating vibrant, uplifting paintings based on my personal experiences. My artwork brings nature into your living or work spaces in a joyful and exuberant way.
Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to visit my Bethlehem studio and gallery and view some work up close. It's open by appointment.
I'm on the organising team for the inaugural BOP Open Studios in February 2024. My work is available here in my shop and at The Mandarin Tree gallery in Gordonton. I'm honoured to again be an exhibiting artist at NZ Art Show in Welllington and am excited to also have my work at the Auckland Art Show in 2024.
ARTISTS IMPRESSIONS OF NEW ZEALAND 2024 - Cover Artist
I am absolutely thrilled that my painting 'Solstice Sunset' (pictured below) has been selected to be on the cover of the Artists Impressions of New Zealand calendar for 2024. What an absolute honour. The calendar is produced by Elastic Design and published by Brown Trout Australia Publishers and is available in New Zealand book shops and stationers from September 2023.
Keep an eye out for it at Whitcoulls, The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery, Take Note or your local independent book store! I'm going to be buzzing over this one for quite some time!
