Between 1983 and 2007 Nick worked in London as a designer in industry, designing furniture, shops, hotels and restaurants culminating in 6 years running a successful design consultancy specialising in the leisure industry.

In 2007, with his wife and daughter, he opted out of the London rat-race and moved back to North Wales for an altogether better quality of life. Living in the hills of Snowdonia in an old farm house, he is now able to fully focus on painting and drawing.

Initially displaying his work at local Art Society exhibitions such as the Aberdyfi Art Society, CRYD and the Meirionnydd Artists Society, in 2009 Nick helped create the Dyfi Arts Guild, a co-operative supporting local arts and crafts based at Y Plas, Machynlleth.

In the summer of 2012 an opportunity arose to rent a vacant shop in Aberdyfi. Nick and several other professional artists held a 'pop-up' exhibition under the name 'ArtWorks'. Its popularity and success inspired Nick and his wife Kate to turn this into a permanent venture. Thus ArtWorks Aberdyfi was born, and a brand new gallery was built in Aberdyfi, which opened in April 2014.
