Oil Paintings

Born in Connecticut in 1971 and raised in Muir Beach, California, Nicholas Coley studied art at L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Aix-en-Provence and at the Marchutz School in Le Tholonet, France. He holds a BA in painting from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, and lived, studied, and painted for a year in a Vietnamese Buddhist Monastery in southwestern France. A familiar face in the woods at San Francisco’s Presidio, Coley’s art is often likened to the Impressionists and The Society of Six. He has successfully shown his work at many Bay Area galleries including the SFMOMA Artists Gallery. He was in group shows at St. Mary’s College, Los Gatos Museum, and a solo show last year at the Berkeley Theological Seminary which involved talking about the divine in the landscape. He’s exhibited and sold his work from San Francisco to Boston for the past 20 years. He just completed his second artist residency in Healdsburg, CA, most recently at Chalkhill Winery. For pricing please contact us.
