Nash spent his school days in Clacton-on-Sea. After attending the Holland Park County Primary School he graduated from Colbayn's High School in 1973. Subsequently he studied at the Colchester School of Art, the Middlesex University, and the Royal College of Art where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree in graphic design (scientific illustration) in 1979 and his Master of Arts degree in natural history illustration in July 1982. Nash initially planned a profession as medical illustrator but he changed his career path after he has seen the Callitrichid monkeys for the first time at London Zoo. Since 1982 he worked for Dr. Russell Mittermeier, chairman of the IUCN/SSC Primate Specialist Group and president of Conservation International, and for Dr. Anthony Rylands, deputy chairman of the IUCN/SSC Primate Specialist Group. After the founding of Conservation International in 1987 Nash became its scientific illustrator in 1989. In 1990 he married Luci Betti who works as illustrator too. Nash provided illustrations for numerous books, scientific articles, and conservation education materials, including Monkeyshines on the Primates: A Study of Primatology (1994), Lemurs of Madagascar (1994), Primates of West Africa: Pocket Identification Guide (2010) and the primates volume of the Handbook of the Mammals of the World (2013).

In 2002 Marc van Roosmalen and Russell Mittermeier commemorated Nash with the name of the titi monkey Callicebus stephennashi. In 2004, the American Society of Primatologists honored him with its President’s Award and in 2008 he received the PSGB Occasional Medal of the Primate Society of Great Britain.
