Nathanael A. Volckening Biography
Nathanael Volckening was born in 1988 to a family of artists and craftspeople, and raised in Taos where he developed a deep love and appreciation for the artistic heritage of northern New Mexico. Enamored by the works of Nicolai Fechin, Maynard Dixon, Ernest L. Blumenschein, and others, Nathanael followed their example and built an artistic foundation in the traditions of the old masters before developing a more personal style. Though he has received guidance and instruction from various living artists, Nathanael is largely self taught, owing much of his knowledge to his study of great artworks of the past. Today, Nathanael lives with his growing family in Colorado, taking frequent painting trips throughout the American Southwest. Taos remains one of his most beloved places of inspiration.
