at the Joel Gallery, Cornwall

Born in December 1960, the son of one of Britain’s foremost landscape artists, Caesar Smith, Nicholas started his artistic career soon after leaving school in Peterborough.

Nicholas drew inspiration for his early work from studying wildlife in his native Fens. This was put to good use as his intricate watercolour studies of all things natural became very collectable, leading to many ‘sell out’ exhibitions across the Midlands and London during the 1980s and 1990s.

With a dramatic relocation to the far west of Cornwall in 1997, Nicholas found his new surroundings a wonderful opportunity for his artistic talents to grow.

Now working from his studio at his home on the moors between Morvah and Madron near the popular visitor attractions of Lanyon Quoit and the Men-An-Tol, Nicholas welcomes visitors to see what makes his paintings so special. 

The studio is only open by appointment, but if you are visiting in the area, please give Nicholas a call and come and see what new paintings and prints are available to purchase directly from his studio.
