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 two of the world’s most highly rated artists, Craig Bone and Rob Macintosh.
Nick’s paintings are sold all over the world and can be seen in many private collections, hotels, business premises and private homes.
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.
His demo paintings are available on B.O.B. crazy Wednesdays and weekends. His own personal work is displayed for sale on the B.O.B. Buy Now section.
