Born an only child one would think Nick would have received an enormous amount of attention from his parents, and while he may have he only remembers one particular staple in his developing years. 'the music and movies were always there'. some years later Nick was introduced to the works of Andy Warhol. The celebrities in the images and the vibrant colors truly inspired him to attempt his on works of art. Now, (43k in student loan debt later) Nick introduced himself to the local art market as an art instructor/ gallery diva. Keeping close to his original inspiration one could argue his work gaudy, but a select few see the vibrant life he is trying to provide in his own way.
