About the artist:

Nick’s passion for artistic expression was influenced by early years in Kapuskasing Ontario, where endless forests, and lakes provided a backdrop of untouched glory.

A self taught artist, Nick applied problem solving skills learned through years of technical training to develop a process to sculpt trees from stone, completing his first piece in 2009. An avid hiker and kayaker, each trip results in new candidates for his portfolio.

Painstaking attention to detail is required to complete each hand finished piece. His work conveys subject matter that is on one hand strong and selfless, but on the other is fragile and at our mercy. Nicks’ goal is to create art that brings ancient evolutionary, and emotional connections between humans, and habitat to the conscious surface of the viewer. It is his hope that this connection will motivate people to become better stewards of the environment versus simply consumers.

Current works in Koyman Galleries, Ottawa; Cornerstone Gallery, Kingston; and Riverbend Studio, Peterborough.
