Though deeply influenced by his artistic forebears, he ultimately developed a unique style that solidified his professional reputation among critics and collectors alike. Nicholas’ humility and passion for painting are as important to his success as his artistic roots. He loves the process, the exploration, the challenge, and the discovery inherent in plein air painting. Nicholas’ paintings reflect his sensitive response to the natural environment, inimitably capturing light, color and atmospheric effects. He counts among his influences Aldro Hibbard and Walter Palmer, and is particularly interested in those artists’ studies of snow and its endless variations of tone and hue, a pursuit that also compels Nicholas. He has received 84 awards from 1981 to the present, including several Gold and Silver medals.
