Nick was born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire (of 'crooked spire' fame) in 1959. Despite attaining an 'A' in art at A-Level he was encouraged to go to University rather than Art School. He read Archaeology at Leicester University followed by a P.G.C.E.
In 2003 Nick and his wife became partners in another venture, Charisma Gallery in Matlock. The gallery showcased Nicks works along with other artists and craftspeople from all around the UK. Owning an art gallery had always been a dream of Nicks and the experience gave him the encouragement he needed to take his art to the next level, professionally publishing his work and exhibiting in galleries throughout Britain. Nick is now represented by Buckingham Fine Arts. His work can be found in many galleries throughout Britain as well as several local galleries in Northumberland which regularly stock his work. He has work in collections in Europe and has several celebrity collectors.
Nick now lives yards from the sea in Embleton on the fantastic Northumberland coast where he is inspired by the landscape and seascapes every day.
