Nixon "Nick" Galloway's interest in aviation is a long standing one, as both his father and grandfather were pioneer aviators in the Los Angeles area in the twenties and thirties. He spent many happy hours as a child flying with them in the Waco's, Swallows and Stearmans of the day.
After serving a stint in Naval Aviation in WWII, he took up flying, but with the abundance of pilots coming out of the services, decided to pursue a career as an artist and enrolled at Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. He has been a freelance artist for over forty years, working as an illustrator, doing advertising art for companies such as Lockheed, Northrop, Allied-Signal, Hughes, Boeing, Bendix, United Airlines, Continental Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines and NASA.
He has been active in the Air Force Art Program and over thirty of his paintings are in the permanent collection. Nick's work has been exhibited in the White House, Pentagon, Kennedy Space Center, Smithsonian Air & Space Museum, RAF Museum, EAA and Air Force Museums. He has won awards for his aviation artwork in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Dallas, Washington D.C. and Dayton. Nick is an "Artist Fellow" member of the American Society of Aviation Artists. He also holds memberships in the Aviation Historical Society, Air Force Association, Naval Institute, the EAA and Red Barons. When not working at his easel, Nick can be found on the ski slopes or racing his sailboat in the waters of Southern California.
