Nicoletta's artistic career began with a simple subject, the "flower". Her inspiration behind this subject was born more from the apparent challange as her aim was to reinterpret; to give a new artistic life to a subject all too often considered an artistic cliché. In her hands, using her technique, the flowers took on a new life. They seemed invigorated, presenting with these irreverent petals which seem to emerge from the wood, bloom, and smile with an invigorated arrogance and desire for redemption. The blossoms are cheerful, colorful, and modern; exploding in all their vividness. The flower still remains one of her favorite subjects. They are a source of continual discovery as so many varieties exist; each with thier own shapes and details to reinvent. Nicoletta's flowers are unmistakenly unique and so removed from the banality of most flower painitngs, it is something that all must experience.
