My Story


Hi, I'm Nicoy, better known as DOWNES, and I am an artist based in the UK.

My inspiration for my work comes from everyday life as well as my own experiences, using them as a basis to create art that can tell a story. 

My art journey started back in school where I did art as part of my GCSEs. I discovered I had a love for paint, primarily watercolours at the time, and the textures and depth of colours you could create with them. Since then I have tried other paint mediums such as acrylic and oil paint to help diversify my skills.

The main aim of my work is not only tell my own story but for others to create their own stories from what they can see.
