Nicolas Anthony Payne credits William Phillips, a gifted artist and teacher in Tacoma, WA, as an important early influence who inspired a career in art and education.

After graduating from the University of Washington, Nick spent two years in Belfast, Northern Ireland working for a voluntary service organization. On returning to the USA, he taught in a rural public school in northeastern Washington. During this time, he married. Several paintings feature his children.

After 20 years in the classroom, he moved to western Washington where he served as a principal for 13 years in the Bellingham and Ferndale school districts.

Through most of his career in education, his parallel career was in art. "I'm on the cusp of producing my best paintings because my spiritual practices and my art are better integrated," he said. Paintings posted on this site span four decades.
