“I am processing what it looks like to paint work that is true, beautiful and restorative, I want to reflect God’s wonder and grace while wrestling with daily struggles and pain”

I grew up in the Los Angeles area and started playing drums at age seven. My dream was to become a professional musician. While in high school I started playing gigs and doing studio work and for the next ten years I worked at my craft. During that time, I became involved with my local church and realized that my current lifestyle was unhealthy for me, and I put aside my music and started to draw and paint. At age twenty-six I enrolled at Art Center College of Design to study illustration and painting. Since the early days, my work has addressed a longing for a spiritual connection with God and an ongoing relationship and dialog with him.” I am processing what it looks like to paint work that is true, beautiful and restorative, I want to reflect God’s wonder and grace while wrestling with daily struggles and pain”. Nathaniel explains,” I can easily fall back to a position of destructive, let’s break all the rules attitude, but I have found that an attitude of anger and disconnection does not enable me to produce work I am interested in”.

What gives you goosebumps?

Music, hearing a song that touches me, deep down in my soul. When the melody and lyrics tell a story of redemption or suffering or love. Music that paints a picture in my head. I really do get goosebumps.

Not a superpower, but I wish I could sing well.
