John Nicholson is a Scottish artist who has lived and worked in the Highlands for over 50 years and is currently based in the City of Inverness.  He has a studio at WASPS Inverness Creative Academy.

Most of his work is inspired by his attachment to the Highlands and Islands, including Skye, home of his ancestors.

For nearly 40 years he has also travelled to paint in France.  Favourite haunts have been the Tarn, Corrèze and Dordogne.

Meticulous in approach, John combines subject matter and abstract elements in his search for aesthetic, intellectual and emotional significance.
