After graduating from the University of Utah, Nate began focusing entirely on fine art oil landscapes and pursued his career path while living alternately in California and Hawaii. While attending different exhibitions and galleries of contemporary artists, Nate was struck by the modern approach to still life painting. From this inspiration he began to reinvent his own approach to fine art.
Leaving traditional landscapes behind, Nate now paints scenes staged entirely by his own imagination and design. While his popularity grows, so does the scale and complexity of his work. Nate lives in Hawaii and shows his work in many exhibitions each year.
