Nick Holmes couldn't have a much more impeccable art, media and painting background. First studying Art & Design at Winchester School of Art, he then passed through a Diploma and MA in Film Studies (Derbyshire and Sheffield Hallam) before teaching art, photography and film as a Lecturer at Oldham Sixth Form College. Leaving in the early 2000s having completed an MA in Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University, he moved to Northumberland with his wife Helen to focus himself more fully on painting and found himself inspired by the sudden revelation that 'it's all been done before'.

Since then he hasn't looked back, greatly extending his range and pursuing a less purely cerebral form of abstraction (somehow warmer, fuller) whilst also finishing another MA, this time at Sunderland University. Since 2004 he has been exhibiting widely all over the country, particularly in Yorkshire, Teeside and Northumbria and, in 2011, he was shortlisted for the National Open Art Competition.
