"If you want to paint, just don't let anything hold you back," says Nicole about her artistic side. "if you want to sell your paintings, exhibitions are a great, cheap way of doing so. If you haven't been to art college don't worry, I don't think you need qualifications to paint, I mean I don't have any!" Nicole credits the work of the famous artist David Hockney as a major inspiration. If only Leonardo da Vinci could have met and painted Nicole. He really missed the boat. She really shares the same quizzical smile of the Mona Lisa at times. But, of course, has a much better rack.
