Nicola Bennett - Flavour

Nicola Bennett - Flavour

Painter Nicola Bennett, originally from England, has lived in Okere Falls, New Zealand for the past 20 years. Nicola’s art is deeply connected to her love of food. She believes that they are so intricately linked - in their processes, shared pleasure and transformation. She approaches her work having been inspired by a cooking experience and loves the sensory pleasure of preparing ingredients and of applying paint. She sees colour like flavour and is forever searching for the perfect balance.


1. “Food is edible love” Nicola’s mom.

2. Write a list of nice things you’d say to a friend and tell those to yourself.

3. Say “shut up” to your inner critic.

4. Celebrate where you are and be proud of the work you make.
