Nicola Gissing

I grew up in Hertfordshire, moving to London to study Graphic Art at Camberwell School of Art, specialising in Printmaking and Photography.

I took a post-graduate course in Photography at Goldsmiths University developing a growing interest in abstract colour photography.

After setting up my own darkroom and holding several exhibitions, in 1990 I joined Debut Art, a cutting edge London based Illustration Agency, working to commission as a photographic illustrator for a wide spectrum of clients.

My work is represented by Art Consultants in London and Cardiff and is on permanent display at the New Open University building, Cardiff.

I am a qualified Secondary School Art teacher, dividing my time between my own work and teaching. Drawing on my early training as a Printmaker, I run Print and Photography Workshops for children and adults.
