Nichols began painting in watercolours from age fourteen, before later moving on to gouache and oils, describing his artistic journey as a ‘long, slow path’. After working in comic book art for a time, in recent years he has painted almost continually, honing his technical abilities.
Since holidaying many times in the Lake District and Scotland growing up, these places developed a special significance for Nichols, along with the climate, with the artist being happiest when it rains. This is evident in his typically atmospheric but vibrant scenes, and the frequent use of reflections in wet ground. His favourite subjects are places he has an emotional connection with, and knows well, and his work often highlights little-known corners of both the urban and rural environment in the British Isles.
Approaching painting in a loose manner, his aim is to capture atmosphere more than technical perfection, often using the mood of a scene to dictate his approach. Nichols has a number of collectors, and has completed commissions in the USA, Europe and the Far East.
