I got to meet Nicholas Bott


Have you ever unexpectedly met someone you admired? Well today was one of those days for me. I had the car for the afternoon so I could run an errand and while I was in the area I wanted to visit the White Rock Gallery because they always have such beautiful displays and I hadn’t been in a while. I walked in and after a minute I noticed there was a small group of staff and an older gentleman talking at the counter and I heard them mention his name, Nicholas Bott.

Nicholas Bott is an amazing artist who portrays Canadian landscape with vibrant colours and bold, angular brushstrokes. I have looked closely at his work online as well as at the White Rock Gallery when I have visited in the past.

It was one of those moments where you suddenly realize you are in the room with greatness (ahem, I mean a successful person… I felt like a teenybopper in the presence of Justin Bieber or something). I casually meandered my way to the counter and interrupted to say how much I love his work. It turned out he was just there dropping off a new collection. The staff even showed me one of his newest paintings.

  1. Oh wow! That’s so exciting! And then you even got to see his newest work up close before it was displayed.

    The real question is….did you get a selfie with him? Haha


  2. I checked out his gallery on your link. I can see why he’s your hero! Your style is definitely going increasingly more on his direction. It’s a very bold style. I love it!
