Nicola was born in 1960 and known primarily for her unsettling sculptural figures assembled from plaster and straw, which explore the complex perception of human character through the allegorical use of animal, human and hybrid forms. She received a BA at Chelsea School of Art and then an MA from The Royal College of Art in London. In 1995 Hicks was awarded an MBE for her contribution to the visual arts. Hicks’ sculpture and drawings include a major solo exhibition at the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven and the 2013 Venice Biennale. Public commissions include large scale sculptures at Schoenthal Monastery, Langenbruck, Switzerland.
