About The Artist

I took up painting seriously when I retired and moved to Dorset in 2009. I attend art lessons at the Studio Art School in Upwey once a week.

I enjoy painting landscapes most of all. I have travelled a great deal and take photos wherever I go. As well as Europe, I have visited Japan, India and Canada and I have painted many scenes from these countries.

I work from my studio in Weymouth and am fortunate to have the South West Coast Path virtually on my doorstep. This year, when travel has been limited, I have painted many more local scenes. A recent trip to Scotland provided additional material.

I like to experiment with various media and colours and have completed a number of abstract and semi-abstract works. If I succeed in painting a picture that is pleasing to the eye, I am satisfied.

The Second Coming

The painting developed into a mythical representation of a new beginning, because of the nature of the composition. I noticed a person standing far away in the distance from one of the photographs I had taken. The sheer scale of the rhododendron trees makes a powerful image, especially with an almost biblical sky. I used several layers of paint to create a dramatic effect. I wanted to draw the viewer into the landscape. Notice how the flower heads stand up in salute to the brilliant light drilling down from above.

About The Artist

I am a Fine Artist based near Hartley Wintney in Hampshire but I also spend a few months of the year in Marbella in Spain, where I paint on location.

I studied ‘visual communications’ and completed a foundation course in the late 1980’s - gaining a distinction at the Cardiff Institute of Art and Design. I then worked in London as an Art Director for a number of leading agencies, before deciding to concentrate on oil painting and pen and ink drawing. I have been classically trained and my style has been described as similar to that of the 'Impressionists'.

My paintings and drawings are for sale and can be viewed on this Hampshire Artists site and in the Gallery of my website. I am also available to undertake commissioned work.

I offer art lessons.

Art Lessons

I am in the process of setting up art classes in the evenings for the Fleet area of Hampshire in the UK, and also in Marbella in Spain. I will naturally be teaching adult students how to paint in oils, and will also be concentrating on developing their drawing techniques.

The objective of the courses will be to focus on individual requirements. Everybody has their own preferences regarding what they like to paint or draw. I will endeavour to improve a student’s skill level, so they become more confident and proficient.

I also will be organising groups to join me during some weekends drawing and painting landscapes on location.

If you would like to know more about these lessons please contact me on the numbers or email address above.

About The Artist

I am based in Hampshire, a county full of variety for the artist, with coasts and marinas, ancient towns, the New Forest, and the start of the South Downs. There is plenty here to fire the imagination. Regular visits to the West Country, especially Somerset, inspire with it's own landscape and coastline.

My background in textiles has been a big influence, giving me a continuing interest in pattern and texture, resulting in the use of collage in much of my work. Favourite subjects vary from wildlife in a slightly mystical setting, to the bustle of urban spaces, or boats jostling in a local marina.
I hope that experimenting and trying new things will keep the work fresh, while sketching on location provides a break from working on finished pieces and is great for gathering information.

About The Artist

Art has been part of my life for as long as I can remember, however it is only in recent years that I have specialised in Animal Art, after retiring from teaching, where I held the position of Art co-ordinator.

My main work is creating pastel portraits from photographs of people’s cats, dogs and horses (or any other pet)! The aim of each portrait is to capture the true character, personality and expression of the pet, enabling people to enjoy and cherish them for a lifetime. The key to capturing your pet is through the eyes. When this is right, the rest follows.

I had the opportunity to go on Safari to Botswana and see the most magnificent animals, first hand, in their natural habitat; such a privilege! Since then I have developed a portfolio of wildlife Animal Art. For this I use Pastels and Graphite pencils, where very fine detail can be achieved.

Art Groups / Exhibitions

I am a member of the Ringwood Art Society, the Society of All Artists and the Society of Equestrian Artists. I have exhibited work locally, in London and in New York. I am also linked to the Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS). 20% goes to the WVS, when I sell a painting through their organisation.

I accept commissions and am happy to paint any animal. I feel very fortunate to finally be doing what I love.

About The Artist

A keen landscape artist from an early age, Nic gained his first commission – an epic 3 metre tableau of historic scenes of home town Havant in oils. This painting which is still on show at the council's offices was featured on the BBC’s Catalogue of Publicly-Owned Art (now artuk.org).

Over the next decade, working mostly from life, Nic attempted to capture the landscape around him, even when that landscape was the city. At this time, watercolours proved the ideal medium, being small and portable.

In 2003 Nic returned to oils and painted two large canvasses featuring figures for the first time. The painting ‘Boys in Dune’ was snapped up on its first day of exhibition, and remains Nic’s most popular seller, being reproduced onto canvas. At this time a short series of landscapes in pastels was created (2003-2004).

A decade of oil painting followed before a sense of rediscovery in watercolour.

Digital Art

Working as a graphic designer provides the tools and knowledge to create digital art. Nic’s works on screens are printed using the industry’s best possible materials, creating a valuable ‘original print’. The iPad range is really terribly popular and ideal for commissions, with its unique hybrid mannerism. You can see works on show at Treagust and Co, North Street Emsworth, and at Emsworth Sailing Club. Details on Nic's Website.
