Born in Buckinghamshire this self-taught Wildlife Artist uses a highly original and unique mixture of mediums over a detailed engraving on a hardened linen board, which illustrates the profound effect that the early Victorian hand-tinted copper plates of birds and animals had upon him as a child. This still influences him today. During the past 25 years, he has worked for many top Natural History galleries, including Edwards Contemporary Art, Tunbridge Wells, from 1993-1996, Richard Joslin Galleries in Taunton, Somerset, and the David Curzon Gallery in Wimbledon, London. He has also undertaken numerous private commissions, including sets of paintings for new public and private buildings. This included a series of six Botanical Drawings to furnish the new home of Sheikh Mohammed (crowned Prince of Dubai), in Hampstead, London.
At The Wildlife Artists Society International (TWASI) 2012 exhibition at the Nature In Art museum in Twigworth, Gloucestershire, he won The David Shepherd Award for best work depicting an officially recognized endangered species, and the People’s Choice Award for the same painting ‘Snow Leopard’. Nick has sold paintings & prints all over the world.
