Working largely in oils, Nick avoids a slavish photographic representation, enjoying the possibilities of mark making, surface textures and abstract qualities that are encountered through the act of painting. His focus is to capture the feeling and emotion of a place, whilst depicting the interplay between light, land, water and sky. Apart from a wealth of rich subject matter near his home in Tonbridge, he enjoys painting views of London, coastal and upland Britain and continental cities.
Nick regularly exhibits his work at a number of leading galleries and Art Fairs around UK, including Whittington Fine Art, Henley, The Blackheath Gallery, Glyndebourne Gallery and West House Gallery Smarden. Selected shows include RSMA, RBA, ROI, RWS, shows at Mall Galleries, Chelsea Art Society and numerous Affordable Art Fairs. He was awarded The Jullian Barrow painting Prize at Chelsea Art Society 2018, and The Painting Prizes at the Pure Art Fair, Sussex, 2017 and 2018. He has been commissioned for many private and corporate projects including for a number of Royal Caribbean Liners and a London Underground Poster. He has written articles for The Artist, and Artists and Illustrators Magazines and his work appears in a number of practical art books.
