She is well known for her miniature fantasy models built out of gourds and re-cycled objects. She has been building these intricate houses for approximately 30 years and displays them at local shows and schools on the Gold Coast.
Her aim is to build a giant miniature village, titled Tanglemire Forest No Ordinary World, for the enjoyment of all and where all can walk amongst it.
The fantasy characters living within her houses have now been immortalized on the page in Nicola's first novel titled The Gribble's Gift. She shall be self-publishing this illustrated chapter book in early 2019.
Nicola lives with her partner Garry and has two children.
Tanglemire Forest No Ordinary World is a miniature village in the making. It will be filled with fantasy models built from gourds and recycled objects. Some models hang from the boughs of trees while others can be found amongst the mushrooms on the floor of the forest. The aim is to eventually build a display so large that all who believe in hidden worlds can walk amongst it. Nicola has been building it for over 30 years.
Nicola's first novel is titled The Gribble's Gift. She shall be self-publishing this illustrated chapter book in early 2019.
The book will be available in Hardcover full colour, Softcover black and white, e-book and print on demand in 100 countries.
