Nicholas Mynheer studied Graphic Design at the Hornsey College of Art in London, graduating in 1981. After spending several years working in Advertising he turned to painting full time, then subsequently sculpture and glass design.
A rigorous simplicity typifies Mynheer's work, whether it be in stone, oil or glass. Anything superfluous to the design is omitted and anything deemed important emphasised.
Largely figurative his work is almost always biblically based and has a linear quality that is richly expressive.
