NICK NEDDO

Nick Neddo is a sixth generation Vermonter who has been making art since he could first pick up a crayon. He grew up exploring the wetlands, forests and fields of his bioregion and developed a profound curiosity, respect and love for the community of life around him. As a youngster Nick identified primary focuses that would become life-long pursuits: study of the natural world, Stone Age technology (popularly known as primitive skills) and creating art. Trusting the inherent value of these skills, he continues to embrace their pursuit with a ravenous appetite fueled by a genuine love of the living world and the creative process.

Nick teaches workshops regularly and is the author of The Organic Artist, a very generous book that carefully explains and illustrates every necessary step in the making of inks, charcoal drawing utensils, paints and more from foraged wild materials.
