About the Artist
Like so many people, I loved drawing when I was at school, but turned to science for my career and didn't really make any time for art. That changed when I went to a "Drawing For the Not So Terrified" class at New College, Swindon. It didn't take long for me to remember how much pleasure I got from drawing. Life had just got in the way. Give me a sheet of paper, a pencil and a drawing pen and I can easily forget the stresses of a busy day.
When I discovered Posca Pens (water-based paint pens), my artistic world took on a whole other more colourful dimension.
I mainly like drawing people and urban landscapes. I am enjoying seeing how far I can push the possibilities with the pens and have been experimenting with different types of paper and pen combinations. Further examples of my work can be seen on Instagram - nickyrobinson.art.
