Nat Dickinson is a native of Washington, D.C., and received his undergraduate studio arts degree from Kenyon College and his MFA from Indiana University. His love of painting landscapes was instilled by his grandfather. As a child, Nat would paint with him on the back porch of their cottage in Maine overlooking the Penobscot Bay.
His landscapes focus on our deep attachments for places, and the memorable moments when light and atmosphere transform a familiar scene. Landcape painting is a family tradition he is proud to carry on. If you search through his other works, you'll find papier mache oddities and experimental abstracts. These are the inventions of a busy mind that occasionally finds consistency a bit dull.
He continues to work in coastal Maine and his home in Asheville, North Carolina.
