New Artist: Hazel Nicholls


Hazel Nicholls is one of our latest additions to the Soma artist lineup. She joined us at Pick Me Up where her screenprints proved very popular. The fluro pink Russian Doll print below was probably the most photographed piece on our stand!

Hazel Nicholls is 31 and lives in South East London. Thirteen years ago she moved from Northern Ireland to attend Camberwell College of Arts. She left Camberwell with a degree in Illustration. Hazel loves Real Ale, the seaside, ten pin bowling and of course a good pun. Her work is mostly influenced by a longstanding love of cross stitch and an interest in old phrases. Her designs have found themselves on limited edition prints, ceramics, textiles, packaging and more recently a giant fibre glass egg (as part of the Faberge Big Egg Hunt, 2012). She learnt how to screenprint four years ago and she hasn’t looked back since.


You can view all items by Hazel on our website here including silkscreen prints, tea towels and tape.
