About

Hello! I am Nick Lyons an artist from the UK and welcoming you to my web site.

 

I started drawing professionally at 18 working for the publisher D.C.Thompsons. Painting for their many magazines and cartoons for their newspapers and comics (Dandy and Beano, Sunday Post to name a few).

 

Extending horizons, I moved to France aged 21 and went freelance. Selling originals, prints, postcards, working for magazines, newspapers and advertising. It was here when I first added a Frog and Snail into all my cartoon paintings.
 

In brief, I lived over 20 years in France, mainly in Bordeaux, Paris and in the Val d’Isere in the Alps and then finally due to love I returned back to the UK.
