Born in a family where the matriarch was an artist and both parents had the artistic vein, Nick Turner was surrounded by artistic expression, the things that make him who is is today. Born in Boston, Nick grew up in Maine and was home schooled until age 15. His next adventure was in France to continue his studies, where he remained until he concluded his Baccalaureate at the International School of Toulouse.

Nick was fortunate enough to be accepted into Parsons Paris campus, so he packed his bags and moved to the city of lights. During his attendance at Parsons, Nick developed a long and debilitating depression and found solace in his artwork.

Rousseau and Nick developed a great friendship/mentorship that made Nick realize art was a passion he should seriously pursue.
