My intentions with this portrait is to display a work of abstract realism with the formation of shapes that are curious and considered.

In my practice as sculptor Im always looking to challenge myself, to move forward.

I do accept commissions, though sculpture will vary from the original.

Sculptor Bio

Nicole O'Regan

Nicole O'Regan

The first 17 years of my career was as a structural steel fabricator.  Projects included structural skeletal framework for large domestic buildings, commercial buildings and difficult, complex structures.

Over 10 years ago I merged into art fabrication for other artists as well as exhibiting my own works, exhibiting widely throughout NSW.

Nicole has always been a “maker” from attempting to build a brick dog kennel from the age of 8 to building a three bedroom house unaccompanied to where she is now, currently a practicing artist.

Having been a steel fabricator for the first 17 years of her career, naturally her sculptures were predominately steel. In her pursuit of creating sculptures that are unique, never been done before Nicole has been incorporating rocks in her work.

The formation of the rocks is how they are found. Spending many hours searching for the right shapes and scale. Then carefully weaving steel around the natural contours and structure to create the form.

Nicole lives in the small locality of Hampton, central west NSW. She lives on an isolated property of native bushland 1083 metres above sea level, winters are significantly cold with snow falling a few times a year. She feels extremely privileged to live in such an idyllic landscape alongside her partner Jono and blue cattle dog Remi.
