Seeing the beauty in the moment...

Welcome to Corinna Nicoll Art!

Welsh artist Corinna has been painting since she was a teenager, and has created paintings for her home and for family and friends ever since.  In 2020, she decided to start selling her colourful and contemplative artwork as a Penarth-based art business, alongside her other work as a reflexologist (Corinna's reflexology company is Reflex Wellbeing in Penarth, UK, visit to find out more). 

She sees the two activities as complementary: through both art and reflexology she can bring something of herself to others, and hopefully inspire feelings of happiness and calm.

Corinna has always been very drawn to certain colours, sunset oranges and reds, and blues and turquoises.  She feels colour is what makes the world alive and beautiful.  Colours to her represent variety and difference, and many tones of colours together make a rich and diverse world.

Since  losing her husband in 2008, Corinna has felt strongly that life is in the ordinary moments, eating icecreams on the beach with her children, singing in a choir, spending time with loved ones...

She is passionate about the energy and feelings of colours and moments of joy that come from feeling connected to life.   Moments in life contain beauty in many forms, be it visual beauty, the beauty of togetherness, laughter, fun, new ideas, synchronicities, different elements coming together in harmony.  

In her art Corinna wants to show the beauty in the ordinary, and  likes to focus on seascapes, streetscenes and contemplation in everyday life.   Original artworks and prints are available.

Penarth scenes

Penarth Marina Boats

Corinna is often inspired by interesting scenes around her local area and will be adding more scenes of Penarth and beyond over time.



This painting was inspired by a meditation on sunlight with the image of the sun bursting into Corinna's mind.

Corinna often visits beaches across South Wales, and will be adding more scenes over time.
