Marine artist Nick John Rees was encouraged by his friend the artist Sir Kyffin Williams to paint professionally and to paint what he loved: for Nick this has been his life long love of the sea. 


Nick enjoys the challenge of painting the ever changing sea and his interest lies in capturing its atmosphere & light – always the same, yet never the same. He strives to translate the power & emotion of the sea in a way that allows people to find their own interpretation of the mood & movement of the water. Whenever possible Nick enjoys painting en plein air to fully absorb the atmosphere & spirit of the scene before returning to his studio to complete the work.


Nick's work is spontaneous in nature with much use of the impasto technique employing the palette knife to create strong textures which are juxtaposed against the background of immense skies. These sculptural textures are created using only paint without any additives or other medium being added to the work which is highly unusual. This gives his work it's recognisable tactile & three dimensional quality thus creating a painting that offers something a little different each time it is viewed from different angles.

Nick has sold his work worldwide, exhibiting in galleries throughout Wales, England & France. His paintings are held in both private and public collections in many different countries throughout Europe & Asia, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa & America, where he has found an increasingly appreciative audience for his paintings.
