Nick Orsborn/Cicada Jewellery – The Cicada House
Nick Orsborn has lived and worked in Brighton for nearly 50 years. Largely self-taught in the use of watercolour, it has been his medium of choice for the past 45 years. His figurative paintings are very concerned with expressing the joy of life, not its darker moments. His creative glass is always half full, never half empty! In 2007 he was elected a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours (RI).
In parallel with his painting activities, he also makes a range of resin jewellery, marketed under the name Cicada Jewellery.
He exhibits his Paintings, Prints and Jewellery at his own Open House every May and at Christmas. He originally showed as an independent artist but since 2014 has been a member of The Fiveways Group.
