My abstracts on glass are primarily inspired by the landscapes of Australia and Scotland. Using mainly translucent colours I am able to reproduce the intensity of colour and light often seen in nature but never quite captured with other media: a magnificent sunset, the sun on a wave, an electrical storm.
In 2004, following a successful career in the insurance industry, Nick Giles sold his share in the family business in order to pursue his creative leanings, which until then had focused on interior and garden design in his spare time. Based at Robinwood Art School in Ayr, Scotland and under the tutelage of Joan Lawson, the well-known Ayrshire artist, he immersed himself in the pain and pleasure of learning to paint.
