Nick Potter specialises in dramatic contemporary landscape and seascape. He paints mainly in acrylics and acrylic inks. Nick's inspiration has always been landscape especially wild landscapes. 

Nick Potter was born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire (of 'crooked spire' fame) in 1959. Despite attaining an 'A' in art at A Level he was encouraged to go to University rather than Art School .He read Archaeology at Leicester University followed by a P.G.C.E. 

In the early eighties Nick Potter moved to the beautiful village of Great Bowden in the heart of the Leicestershire countryside. Living in the country and fuelled by frequent visits to Cornwall, Scotland and the Lake District he became much more interested in Landscape painting. This led to years of experimentation with different media which is when he discovered the vibrancy of acrylic inks, using them like watercolour paints. This was the beginning of a new enterprise Altered Images a small company that sold Nick's prints and cards to galleries across Derbyshire having moved back there in1988. 

Nick Potter's work is sold worldwide and he has several celebrity collectors. 

Nick Potter paints in his garden studio to the background of Audio books. These are often unabridged and can last up to 17 hours. He is so attuned to this way of working that he cannot paint without them. They are as much a part of the painting process as the paint or canvas.
