About Tap founders:

Jacques Nimki and Stephanie Douet are practising artists who have exhibited widely around the UK and abroad, and have wide experience of teaching and organising exhibitions. They came together in 2018 to form TAP, an independent art school offering a series of courses, opportunities and events for artists wishing to extend and develop their practice.

Stephanie Douet has a BA Hons in Art History from UEA and an MA in Fine Art from Norwich Institute of Art & design (NUA). As well as exhibiting in solo and group exhibitions locally, nationally and internationally she curated the Queen of Hungary artist-led space (2001-4) and has curated over 75 exhibitions with 150+ artists. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘Roar like a Paintbrush’ in Udaipur City Palace, India, and ‘Real/Non-Real’ at Modern Art Oxford Project Space.

Jacques Nimki studied at the Chelsea School of Art and the Royal academy Schools. He is a full time practicing artist and is based in London & Norfolk. Nimki works from and within the urban landscape, using mainly weeds and flowers as a way of exploring how we perceive others and ourselves within particular environments. His work can be found in the Arts Council of England collection and numerous public and private collections worldwide
