There were solo shows in London and Edinburgh (both in association with Sarah Mysercough), and exhibitions, several of which were sell-outs, at the AAF, Battersea, Glasgow Art Fair, Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow Art Club, Collyer~Bristow and the Air Gallery, both in London.
He stopped painting in 2007, due to ill health (problems with his sight - not good news for a painter!) but started again in 2011, having moved to Solihull.
He was approached by Julie Hyde (Founder of COEA) and began their first oil painting class. This quickly turned into 2 oil painting classes, a drawing class and a regular monthly workshop. There was a stint teaching at Solihull College, before Nick decided to set up his own classes. Upon which he was asked to teach life drawing in Stratford, by Michael Culverwell (President of Stratford Art Society), and a year later in Birmingham.
