virtually a fifth of her paintings selling on the night.

the York's St Peter's School and says her influences are rooted in
experience - ranging from childhood trips to the Yorkshire
Sculpture Park to a year spent studying in Rome - and that she has
been inspired by the abstract expressionists, Robert Motherwell and

Yorkshire industrial scenes such as the Ferrybridge power
Commenting on the success of
the launch, she said: "To have secured my debut exhibition so early
in my career was huge, but to sell six of the 32 works on display
on the launch night is beyond my wildest dreams."

Dean's work will be on display at Rollits for three months and the
firm have organised for open days Friday, 20 December 2013 and

relations at Rollits, said: "We actively seek to support local art
and culture and Nichole's links to York meant she was the ideal

the success of the night and I hope as many people as possible are
able to come and see for themselves what an exciting prospect she
is during our open days."

exhibition launched, Nichole Dean's "Repetition 6" was
raffled for Macmillan Cancer Support and raised £220.
