Nelson Nanson is one of the most diverse and exciting artists living and working in the Lake District. Both a sculptor and painter he is known for only producing works of art in multiples of 13 and 26.
One of the most amazing features of the gallery artist, Nelsonn, is his extremely wide range of disciplines. He studied under a number of well- known sculptors and is a self taught painter, but has become a confident and competent ceramicist, photographer and printer, working in collaboration with some of the world’s leading master printers. Nelsonn was born in Carlisle in Cumbria, working in Brighton and Lancashire, before returning to his native county. He splits his time between his studios in Keswick and Newlyn Cornwall.
