Nick Bodimeade

Nick is a full-time painter living and working on a meander-core island on the River Ouse flood plain near Lewes.
For many years an abstract painter, Nick now increasingly draws upon his past experiences as a farm worker in Sussex and Wales and more recently a small holder, mountain biker and walker to make paintings that reflect both his interest in representational landscape painting and process led abstraction.
Nick has many years teaching experience at a number of UK art schools and universities. He has work in public and private collections – including The Government Art Collection, The Contemporary Art Society, The Landmark Trust, Blackwell Science and the Chichester Medical Education Center. He is represented by the Porthminster Gallery, St Ives and the Campden Gallery, Chipping Campden.
