Nicholas Wilton was born in San Francisco, California and spent his youth exploring the wilderness areas of Marin County. As a teenager he studied design with the German contemporary glass artist Ludwig Schaffrath, who catalyzed his ongoing passion for art making.
Nicholas studied art at the College of Creative Studies in Santa Barbara and then went on to receive his BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. In addition to gallery exhibitions and the inclusion in numerous private and corporate collections, Wilton’s paintings have been used on the covers of the national bestseller “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz, and Brene Brown’s “The Gifts of Imperfection”.
Recently, the US Postal Service issued a stamp featuring Wilton’s artwork.
