Nathan-DowningIt was in 2010, when my life was going through many changes, that an urge deep within led me to pick up a pencil. The sense of familiarity was something not felt since childhood. With a personality that leans towards that of a perfectionist, this is expressed in my work with realistic impressions of the desired subject.

I am a local artist born and raised in Yuma, Arizona. Relying upon self-study and discipline to get me started, distance learning with Sadie Valeri Atelier, along with workshops at Scottsdale Art School, have provided a great foundation for development of technique.

Witnessing people enjoying my work for the first time brought great fulfillment. It was then that I realized art is a visual language of humanity and a means of expression that should be shared. Visual communication through art brings about a healthy society. These experiences have brought great insight to my work and has helped me grow as an artist.
