Nate Ronniger was born in Salt Lake City, Utah in 1977. He attended the University of Utah where he majored in painting and earned a BFA in 2000. Following college, Nate worked as a graphic designer and illustrator as he simultaneously began painting the western landscape.
By 2002, Nate was focusing entirely on fine art oil landscapes and pursued this career path while living alternately in California and Hawaii. When attending different exhibitions and galleries of contemporary artists, Nate was taken by the modern approach to still life painting. From this inspiration he began to reinvent his own approach to fine art.
Leaving traditional landscapes behind, Nate now paints scenes staged entirely by his own imagination and design. While his popularity grows, so does the scale and complexity of his work. Nate lives in Arizona and shows his work in many exhibitions each year.
