Acrylic on artists canvas
60 x 46 cm
Nick Stobart was born on a farm in Zimbabwe and finished all his schooling there. He trained as a teacher, and then taught for many years before becoming a headmaster. He left teaching to go farming and remained farming until his farm was taken by the Zimbabwean Government in 2002.
Nick and his wife Laura then moved to the South Coast of South Africa where they both taught at Creston College.
Nick has always painted, but turned professional after a series of painting lessons and strong encouragement from one of the world’s most highly rated wildlife artists, Craig Bone.
Nick’s passion is watercolours but he also loves and works in oils and acrylics. His paintings are widely sold in Australia and New Zealand.
Nick says of his paintings and subject matter, “I have a limitless passion for Africa and all its complexities. I am drawn by its harshness yet incredible beauty. My soul is captured by its wide open spaces, limitless skies and the sense of freedom it invokes in me when I am wandering in the bush.”
I spend my life trying to capture that whenever I am painting, and if am able to pass on even a little of that passion to the people who look at my work, then I have been part of sharing something that is so very special to me.”
Nick paints and runs art lessons from his studio in Ramsgate.
