Nick Giles - Arty Tableware

Nick Giles - Arty Tableware

In 2004, after a successful career in the insurance industry, Nick Giles retired allowing him to pursue his creative leanings, which, until then, had focused on interior and garden design in his spare time.


Under the tutelage of Joan Lawson, the well-known Ayrshire artist, at Robinwood Art School in Ayr, he immersed himself in the pain and the pleasure of learning to paint. His enthusiasm and latent talent saw Nick develop his own painterly style in a remarkably short time, and requests and commissions for his work soon followed. Nick then saw that an artistic career was a realistic prospect.

As many artists, past and present, draw on Arran's beauty and wildlife to inspire them, so it is with Nick, whose character is reflected in his interpretation of his surroundings in his bold, colourful, vibrant and sometimes humorous work. Nick also cites the Scottish Colourists J.D. Fergusson and F.C. Cadell as his biggest influences.

A selection of Nick's prints reproduced from original paintings on glass and canvas are now available as arty coasters.
