Nick is an award-winning British artist and scuba diver whose mesmerising portrayals of marine life sparkle like the oceans they represent.
Driven by his passion for wildlife and his personal commitment to conservation he wants people to “see the beauty that exists in nature in the hope it will inspire them to protect it.” Although he paints many different species, his favourite subject is sharks as they represent a significant personal journey for him from childhood fear to knowledge and understanding as an adult. He deliberately shows them in a non-aggressive light to highlight their strength, grace and beauty, and in 2016 his shark painting Strength won the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Into the Blue category. Nick's work has brought him many accolades. He has been a finalist in the prestigious DSWF International Wildlife Artist of the Year Competition every year since 2010, winning first prize in his category in 2016. His list of collectors is impressive and includes Ferrari, Valentino Rossi, Levison Wood, the Discovery Channel and the Florida Aquarium. A signature member of Artists for Conservation and a Partner Artist with the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, he uses his talent to raise funds for many conservation causes such as Explorers Against Extinction, Shark Angels and British Marine Life Rescue.
