Nick was born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire in 1959. 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. Nick usually paints in his garden studio to the background of audio books on tape or CD. These are unabridged and can last up to 17 hours. He is so attuned to this way of working that he cannot paint without them. They are as much a part of the painting process as the paint or canvas.

Having decided on the composition in a sketchbook, he carefully but quickly sketches in the detail. All this planning is often covered by the first coat of paint. He then decides on a 'mood colour which will unify the painting; however the first coat of paint may be the exact opposite. Nick paints with acrylics for their versatility and quick- drying properties. He paints quickly employing various textures, dribbles, splatters and scrapings.
