Biography

Born in Cheshire, and now living in the North East of England, I am an oil paint artist. I regard, oil paint as the perfect medium for capturing light, depth of colour and atmosphere. My work is Influenced by a range of classical painting movements - applied with a fresh approach. I strive to express a sense of detail with loose fleeting brush strokes and capture a feeling that a photo alone cannot portray. With a commercial background in design, solid compositions also play a strong part in my art. Having started as a landscape painter, a significant amount of my work is now portraits.

We were very happy with Nick on this commission. Our brief was very vague so Nick guided us through until we decided on a concept of a family group (including pets) in the garden with the house in the background. We then provided Nick with lots of photos and he made a Photoshop mock up of the painting so that we could check we were happy with the composition. The first mock up was perfect and Nick started painting. We have just received the painting it's great. The house and garden are brilliantly painted. The peoples heads are in a slightly stylised, almost naïve style, which we happen to like. I think Nick is very strong on buildings and landscapes, if you are expecting a photo realism for portraits I would look elsewhere. His communication was fantastic and I would certainly use him again, particularly if I wanted a particular landscape or cityscape painted.
