Jana Nicole, ‘Lucky Lady Calypso’, 2014, Flat Space Art

Jana Nicole's works are often memories in mixed media, up cycling nostalgic materials and iconic images to fuse them with architectural salvage and abstract backdrops, often evoking a myriad of emotions from the spiritual to the comical, the classically familiar to the downright bizarre. Her creativity has been a huge part of her life from childhood. Since settling in East Sussex she has spent years building a successful and happy career as a commercial painter.

LUCKY LADY CALYPSO depicts the artist's interpretation of a doll covered in interesting accessories such as bright red beads, black feathers and white playing card details. The doll's base is made up of books, numbers and a clock face where similar to her other works is reminiscent of items from childhood and adds a novelty to the piece.
