John Nicholson is a Scottish artist who has lived and worked in the Highlands for over 45 years and is currently based in the City of Inverness. John completed his art training at the Byam Shaw in London and worked for many years as a teacher of Art and Design. He joined WASPS Inverness Creative Academy in December 2018.
With his family roots in Skye, he is drawn to the subject matter provided by the west coast of Scotland. Before the Coronvirus epidemic he spent time in France every year where the weather allows more opportunities to work direct from nature. Favourite haunts have been the Tarn, Corrèze and Dordogne.
Meticulous in approach, John combines subject matter and the abstract elements in his search for aesthetic, intellectual and emotional significance.
