Londoner Nicky Jameson was homesick. A Toronto-based fine art photographer, the London native missed the beautiful imperfections and alluring grit of her hometown, feeling a surge of sentimentality best expressed in artistic form.
Combining her fine art photography skills and creative background, Nicky’s artistic grunge approach allows her to portray a city’s emotion and nostalgia through a photograph, while layering on textures, colors, stains, fabrics, and other mixed media to create an intriguing piece that evokes fondness and reminiscence of a landmark, street, or neighborhood. Through these unique and subtle additions, Nicky’s work becomes a lot like memories themselves—layered reflection that’s steeped in a moment’s emotion, connection, and time.
From famous landmarks to the anonymous detritus of a city, Nicky’s cityscapes portray the overlapping complexity of urban life. In addition to London, her one-of-a-kind pieces include Toronto scenes, inviting locals and expats to instantly reconnect with the city’s familiar feel.
Fans and owners of Nicky’s art tend to hold London or Toronto close to their hearts, whether they’re longtime expats, repeat visitors, or fond historians. One satisfied buyer said her piece held the “perfect balance of nostalgia and beauty.” Another claimed, “I feel something different each time I look at Nicky’s work.”
Art should be more than a conversation starter; it should evoke a sense of connection, inspiration, and belonging. By capturing the essence of a city’s dynamic energy, Nicky’s artwork allows a familiar story to unfold, each and every time.
