Nathan has been a lifelong student of evolution and the diversity of life on Earth. After earning a BS in Zoology, he worked in university animal behavior labs, in agricultural fields, as part of a wildlife management field crew for a county level park system in the Midwestern US, and in various positions in science and natural history museums, all the while drawing dinosaurs and other prehistoric lifeforms in his free time. His primary artistic medium is Photoshop, used as a digital painting tool with a Wacom tablet as an input device. Some of his work can be seen in person as part of exhibits at Dinosaur State Park in Connecticut and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas. Nathan's hope for paleoart is that it will be enjoyable to view, while also inspiring people to learn more about science and the history and potential future of life.
