Nick Nickerson - The Frame as Art



Born June 28, 1945, Morgantown, West Virginia.


Spent childhood in Massachusetts, exploring it's woods, lakes and rivers, building small boats and twig huts.


Attended Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, Florida from 1963 to 1966.


Became a documentary photographer in 1966, documenting U.S. Army activities in Vietnam, Korea and Thailand.


Entered the world of advertising in 1970 as an art director. Created many ads, commercials and campaigns, winning numerous awards.


In 1984 my wife and I designed a 37-foot sailboat, which was built in the orient, we then cruised from Maine to the Bahamas, living aboard for two years. Dropped anchor and moved full time into our Ancram, New York home, thus returning to the woods.


My long time love of creating from natural materials became my art.


Since then, I have been creating, displaying and selling works inspired by the rustic tradition, with the evolution of the frame as my art form.
