Birch, Nathan

View artist's CV

Nathan Birch was born in Lansing, Michigan, moved to Canada at an early age and was raised in Edmonton, Alberta. After earning his BFA at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, he began to actively pursue his artistic goals in painting the landscapes where he has lived: the Alberta Prairies, the West Coast of British Columbia and the Rocky Mountains.

To this end Nathan continues to explore the relationships between the painting as a window through the wall vs. the painting as an object placed on the wall.

Nathan currently lives and works in Fernie, BC.
