Join Marlborough-based painter Nicolas Dillon in this Speaker Series event related to our Buller’s Birds exhibition.

A self-taught artist fascinated by birds and light, his first exhibition was a sell-out - at the tender age of 18.  He has since exhibited around the world.

Following in the footsteps of artists like JG Keulemans -one of the artists contributing illustrations to the ‘Buller’s Birds’ book- Nicolas has a passion for native birds, capturing them on canvas in breathtaking detail.

Come and find out how about his approach, process, and how he became one of New Zealand’s few professional ornithological artists.
