Nate Graduated from UFV with a diploma in graphic Design and Illustration in 1995 and has since worked as a muralist and independent designer under N8 Grafica; producing Logos, chalk art, and commission illustrations.
In 2004 he started Brethren Empirical, a graphic T-shirt line with Joseph Campbell. After dissolving the line a few years later, he began producing oil paintings and personal projects in other mediums.
In late 2016, he began apprenticing with fellow UFV alumni, Jody Blakeway, at Inkboy and has been tattooing full time ever since.
His passion is maintained by creating illustrative, custom art for the skin, and developing connections through this uniquely interactive craft.
