About the Aritsts 


Nick lives and works in West Didsbury, Manchester.

Nick’s paintings are inspired by his constant search for sunshine and its power to transform the ordinary places around him into landscapes of vibrant colour, warmth and light. Although largely self taught, informal painting sessions with Ricardo Cavallo, a classically trained Argentinean artist based in Brittany, continue to provide further inspiration and focus for his own development.

Nick has recently been awarded the Raw Sienna prize for his painting ‘5th Avenue’.
