    Another beautiful piece of art; this time a sketch of a much-loved family pet. Not just any Schnauzer, Timo is instantly recognisable as himself. Exceptionally good likeness. Thank you again for your beautiful work, Nick!

    I cannot praise this artwork enough. There were eleven portraits in total - all made from photographs (since an ocean separates the artist from the subjects of his work.)
    The artist has never met any of the subjects in person, yet managed to convey so much of their individual personalities in each sketch. We are all beyond thrilled and highly recommend Nick Fear. He does outstanding work.

    This portrait was made from a photograph (since we are across the Atlantic from the artist) and couldn’t be better. Nick has captured the child’s personality and I couldn’t be more pleased. He is already working on other portraits for me also.
    As to timeliness of shipping etc., everything was sent promptly and according to deadline requested by me. Very happy with the outcome of this experience.

Portrait Artist

Having drawn and painted since childhood and continued through college my hobby eventually took a back seat while I built a career in environmental protection. However creativity was always something I craved and 5 years ago I picked up the paint brushes and pencils and started painting again. I didn't realise how much I missed it. In the last 5 years I learnt and developed more than I ever had and finally I was persuaded by friends and family to become a professional artist.

I'm mostly self taught and interested in a wide variety of art but I particularly love the challenge of portraiture. As you'd expect a likeness is essential but I also always try to capture some of the personality and character of the subject while using bold and expressive mark making. It's this area that continues to evolve in my work

I produce work in oil & acrylic paint and also graphite, pen and ink depending on the subject matter and customer requirements.
I'm constantly striving to develop my style and am inspired by the expressive and painterly style of John Singer Sargent, van Gogh's use of colour and many other contemporary portrait artists.
