Art has always played an important part in Nick’s life. He has been particularly influenced by Turner and Monet whose powerful use of light has fascinated him & this can be seen in his more contemporary artwork.
Nick, who paints professionally, found a particularly strong influence to be Sir Kyffin Williams whom he visited many times. Kyffin encouraged Nick to continue working in his style advising that if “you paint what you love it will be reflected in your work”.
“The sea is my inspiration, always the same, yet never the same”
He prefers to paint on the spot, capturing both light & atmosphere.
His paintings are held in both public and private collections throughout Europe, Australia, America and Asia.
Nick regularly exhibits at The Royal Cambrian Academy & is a gallery artist with The Albany Gallery in Cardiff & The Harbour Lights Gallery in Porthgain, Pembs. He also exhibits at The Waterfront Gallery in Milford Haven, Art Central Gallery in Barry and The Celtic Connections Exhibition in Trebeurden, Brittany.
