Nick Johnson was born in 1965 and grew up in the Vale of the White Horse in rural Oxfordshire. He completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting and printmaking at Winchester School of Art and Design in 1988. In 1994, Nick began a career teaching art and design. He has held teaching posts at schools in both in England and in the United States, where he lived from 1999 until 2004.

Now living and working in South Devon, Nick’s latest works are inspired by Dartmoor and the Devon Landscape and Coastline. Previous years spent in The Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District informed past works. Whether working in oil paint, acrylics, pencil or watercolours, Nick captures the essence of a place and instils his work with spirit and energy.
