Based in the South East of the UK, Nick is a writer by trade, but has always been passionate about, and involved in, art. He is self-taught as an artist. He has worked and exhibited as a photographer, too. For him, words and images are a continuum. Quality, originality, and craft are essential to all creative activity.

About the motivation behind the pieces featured here, Nick states:

 

‘Withdrawal features in the faces I have drawn for multiple reasons. People can withdraw from the mainstream of life because they are socially and culturally annexed. This can happen because of age and invasion. In some of these faces, the process of withdrawal for these reasons is suggested. Age is forcing a natural withdrawal on the older faces. In the Native American faces, the loss of homeland and cultural eradication that occurred in the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries in the Americas is hinted at by the way these faces withdraw into the darkness of history. They are vanishing into time. Other faces suggest the fact that withdrawal is inevitable as we approach death, though some people remain interactive to the end. Withdrawal, then, is the last of Shakespeare’s Seven Ages of the human. It’s why we should laugh and love the light and enjoy every moment.’
