About the Artist;
Nicholas Truscott was born in Melbourne in 1971 and raised in Bendigo, Victoria. At the age of 15 years, he began his picture framing training and art career in specialising in the medium of watercolour. He received a Bachelor of Fine Art in 1994 from La Trobe University, Bendigo, majoring in painting and drawing. Throughout the following years, Nicholas travelled overseas to obtain inspiration and his art and style began to change and move in different directions.
Nicholas has been awarded numerous prizes for his works in exhibitions, including first prize for ‘Works on Paper’, Bendigo Art Gallery, first prize at the Otis Foundation Exhibition, Bendigo and more recently, the Bronze medal at the Camberwell Rotary Art Exhibition. Nicholas has contributed several articles to the ‘Australian Artist’ magazine and has conducted many workshops through ‘Continuing Adult Education’ and the Bendigo Art Society teaching students in the watercolour medium.
