Belmont House Lyme Regis - Nick Ivins


Born in Kent, trained at Turps Art School and Canterbury College of Art and settled in Lyme Regis, Dorset, Nick Ivins is a satisfyingly enigmatic artist. Splashy, colourful and often boat-themed, Nick describes his style ‘as if the bastard grandson of Alfred Wallis careened from a dockside bar, and drunk on colour, set sail in a stolen super yacht around his own leaking bathtub.’

Belmont House is an integral structure in the cultural landscape of Lyme Regis. Once the home of author John Fowles, its history and architectural beauty make it an attractive subject for any artist. Nick's miniature interpretation has a fresh, rosebud innocence, stylistically set apart from much of his other work. The house is nestled between luscious greenery, lapped by a puddle of slate grey gravel. It is enchanting in every sense.
