Initially training for two years as a fine artist, Nick went on to gain a first class honours degree in 3D Design, then a Masters Degree in Industrial Design. Following a successful carreer as a designer in London he has returned to his first love of painting.
Nick works mostly in watercolours and pastels, but his background in commercial and architectural design has lent itself very well to the detailed pen and ink style that can be seen in much of his work, in particular his book illustrations.
His landscapes are notable for their dramatic skies, and with a few strokes of a brush or a pen he is able to capture the character of old buildings, the delicacy of a tree, the flight of a bird, or the cragginess of a rock face.
Nick has a permanent exhibition of his work at ArtWorks, 16 Chapel Square, Aberdyfi. Click here to see the ArtWorks website and to find out more.
