Unlike Elsie de Wolfe, John Nickles did not attend finishing school in Scotland nor did he graduate Summa Cum Laude from RISD for Industrial Design. He was however, born with a keen eye for detail and learned a reverence for materials, process and craft while planing pine planks alongside his father, a master carpenter, starting at the age of 5. Attention to detail is in his DNA.
At 47 years old, he is a true polymath. A multi-disciplinary artist, he has worked for several decades in the fields of music, writing, design and photography.
Brooklyn Fine Design launched in 2014 is the vehicle by which some fine examples of his work are brought to market. The goal being perfection, beauty and ultimately, truth.
