Colour In your Life Nick Eggleston

Featured artist Nick Eggleston appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Ten (10). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.

Originally from Yorkshire, England, Nick Eggleston is currently based in Tauranga after relocating to New Zealand in 2006. He graduated from Chesterfield College of Art and Design in 1981 with a distinction in Ceramics and membership to The Society of Designer Craftsmen.

As well as New Zealand, Nick Eggleston has exhibited his paintings and ceramics in the UK and the Channel Isles. He was also awarded ‘Best Watercolour’ in the 2008 Tauranga National Art Awards.

He has also been an art tutor for 25 years in adult and youth education.

My love of watercolour, as a medium, is very similar to my love of working with ceramics… There’s an unpredictability to both. You can’t fully control what happens at every stage so you learn to work in partnership. There’s an alchemy involved with what happens when paint hits wet paper… Like watching fireworks! You can’t force it. You can only work with what it gives you.” ~ Nick Eggleston

    I live in Hertfordshire, England, United Kingdom and I have been watching and enjoying Colour In Your Life for a long while. It is an excellent programme and I am hoping by joining I will be able to watch many more episodes. I am a retired primary school teacher [art was my specialist subject when I did my training] and now I am able to spend much more time drawing and painting. I like “having a go ” at all mediums and so I watch all episodes and have learnt a great deal . Thank you . Anne Parker
