About the Artist

David Nash portrait David Nash was born in Surrey, England, in 1945. He studied at the Kingston Art School. As an adult he wanted a quiet and inexpensive place to live where he could escape the politics and urban noise of London. He moved to a remote region in the mountains of North Wales called Blaenau Ffestiniog (pronounced Bly-now Festin-eeog), a place to which his grandparents had brought him when he was a child. In 1967 he purchased an old, unused chapel where he and his wife settled. They became a part of this community and started a primary and secondary school that is still open today.

Nash has been well-known on the international art scene since the Guggenheim Museum in New York featured his artwork in 1980. His work can be seen in collections in Britain, the Netherlands, Japan, the United States, and Australia.
