Nic began his artistic journey at an early age, creating school paper scribbles and church bulletin doodles. At the suggestion of a fellow church member, Nic decided to turn his creativity into a career.
Nic is a graduate of Oklahoma State University Institute of Technology in Okmulgee, Oklahoma, where he collaborated with graffiti writers Darshan Phillips and Aaron Whisner. Nic moved on to develop his unique style utilizing computerized compositions and incorporating wood surfaces/frames.
When asked about the influence of art in his life, Nic said, “Making art is a necessary therapeutic experience.” He added that it continues to be an integral and important part of his life, providing personal self-expression and aesthetic satisfaction.
For Nic, art is also about community. He joined with illustrator Jasey Beddingfield to create ArtParty, a self-published mini-magazine featuring East Texas artists.
