Nik graduated in 1998 with a Masters degree Natural History Illustration from the Royal College of Art, London. This course was pursued after first studying Wildlife Illustration at Carmarthenshire College, Wales. Nik has been a regular exhibitor at the Society of Wildlife Artists annual exhibition since 1994 as well as being an SWLA council member.

He has been invited to collaborate on two Society of Wildlife Artists and RSPB artist projects and has also participated as an artist in residence at the Nature in Art Museum since 1997.

Nik has won several awards: the Society of Wildlife Artists awarded him the Natural World Award as well as a bursary for young artists. His achievements also include the BBC Wildlife Award for most creative interpretation of wildlife and in 2002 he received the Artist for Nature Foundation award. In the same year he travelled to Tanzania and Uganda on a painting expedition where he gained first hand experience of West Africa’s flora and fauna. The year 2003 saw him travel to Peru and Ecuador as part of the “Artist for Nature Foundation” expedition.

He has had many illustrative works published, his recent work includes writing and illustrating children’s picture books: ‘The Tide’ and ‘The River’. Nik is also a visiting tutor to the Royal College of Art.

“All non-commissioned works are derivative of a direct response to nature aiming to capture and communicate an experience or encounter intuitively. The majority of paintings being conceived and resolved outdoors in situation, whilst studio work enables another interpretation of the same subject but with a reflective / distilled approach.”
