Nic started his artistic career in a stained glass and metalwork workshop in the south of England. He then went on to study at The Winchester School of Art in Hampshire. After producing various privately commissioned works in glass and bronze he enrolled at John Makepeace’s College, Parnham House, to take an apprenticeship in furniture design and making. Whilst training Nic took part in an exchange program and studied at The Art Institute in Chicago.

His intricate figurines are made from wire, paper and clay and have gained considerable press coverage.
