T.M. NICHOLAS grew up in Rockport, MA admiring the rugged beauty of the northeast coastline of the United States as well as the majesty and diversity of the northern New England landscapes. His father, painter Tom Nicholas, offered advice and encouragement to his son early on, but over the years T.M. developed his own individualistic style to become the highly esteemed plein-air painter he is today. He is considered by many to be among the most prominent painters of his generation. He has won over sixty awards, the first at age 19.
He starts each piece outdoors, putting on the finishing touches in the studio. Nicholas says: "I think that for all artists that work outdoors there’s a similar vein, because they derive things from nature; they have a similar chord running through them- different styles, but there are similarities drawn from working from observation."
T.M. studied under John Charles Terelak at the Gloucester Academy of Fine Arts and Boston area artist George Gabin at Montserrat School of Art. He is a member of the Rockport Art Association, Guild of Boston Artists, Hudson Valley Artists, Artists Professional League, New England Watercolor Society, and the North Shore Arts Association. His work can be found in numerous private and public collections internationally.
