About Nicola Thompson

Action and art, outdoors, family, philosophy, travel and adventure. My career began as a PE and Art teacher in Higher Education, followed by raising 4 sons and a daughter with my husband, during which time I returned to university several times and have exhibited and sold my art work in England and France. In 2017 I have commenced work on a series of stone and bronze sculptures and continue with installations in our woodland garden with the theme of 'Safe Places'. Since 2015 I have opened our gardens with the National Garden Scheme with Art, Sculpture, Meditation and Art Classes, the act of sharing enriches my life and creativity is a necessity. B Ed.

NATIONAL GARDEN SCHEME AT WARTON HALL 2017 The National Garden Scheme Open Gardens 2017 taking place in the gardens of Warton Hall was an astounding success both for the visitors and the all those involved in its creation.
