For Nicholas, Computer Graphics work comes out of an interest in the American and European Progressive Rock movements of the 1970's. Nicholas worked as a Field Service Engineer for a Computer Graphics and Image Processing Systems company named Via Video/Dupont Design Technologies in the mid-1980's. He spent many hours in the evening exploring the potential of this system, long before Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator became commonplace.
In the early 1990's, with the advent of the personal computer and full color graphics cards, Nicholas renewed his interest in the field of computer graphics. He designed and coded his own paint and image processing program, which was modeled on the earlier Dupont system, yet extended based on the knowledge he gained through his initial experiments in this area.
