I'm a Self-taught Digital artist/painter, for the past 6 years of my life, I have had to fight and research for every bit of skill I've gained. Why do I bring that up? Because This means I know what it is to start from nothing and to be lost in the vast world of information. I want to be the one to help others find their way through art.

I believe anyone can learn art! Even when you learn differently than others, or "don't have talent". Art can be demystified, and is accessible to you! Together we can find the path to art that is right just for you.

I try to keep lessons fun and exploitive while still teaching the important fundamentals of art that will make your art head and heels above many other artists, and will allow you to create things from your imagination!

About Nathanael B.

I was child 9 of 14 all of us from the same mother and father, that is an interesting fact, or so many tell me. At the very least it has given me some unique skills for dealing with life. Well, that and being homeschooled. When I decided that I wanted to learn art, I undertook the endeavor of my own volition. I began to study in my free time with all my heart.

We didn't have the extra cash to get me an art teacher, so I was forced to do the research myself, and figure out the ways for me to study that worked for me, and I continue to do so as I will be a student for life.

I want to help people make progress faster than I did, by giving them the help that my experience can afford. I love how I learned, and I think there is much value in doing research on one's own, but I believe that should be coupled with the teaching of those who have come before.

Nathanael is a natural at sharing his skill with others! Art is such an individual thing, and Nathanael is wonderful at adapting the mechanics of art to the learning artist....I completely recommend.

Nathanael has worked very hard for many years on his art, I’ve had the privilege to see him grow from his early pieces to custom creations he has done for me. I’ve never personally taken a formal lesson from him, but he has taught me many things just from casual conversation, and I’m confident he will be an excellent teacher!

He’s patient, encouraging, and very knowledgeable in his field!

Nathanael is one of the most patient people I’ve ever known! When I’ve dabbled in art, he’s always been willing to answer my questions, and help me along my way. He’s an excellent teacher. :)
