About Nathan Scott

DatesBorn: September 17, 1969 in Victoria, BC
Artist BioI'm actually a gold miner by trade. I started my sculpting career upon returning from the Yukon in the summer of 1998. I am self-taught and have had no formal training, so my sculptures have become my resume which is ever growing and changing. Within six months of the beginning of my sculpting career, I was given my first public commission by the Township of Sidney on Vancouver Island. Since that time, I have completed many public commissions, adorning streets, memorials, trestles and parks from Victoria to Prince George. Between public commissions, I have completed many private commissions as well as a line of limited edition. I am kept busy with a variety of art and garden shows throughout the year. I have been involved with shows in Victoria, Vancouver, and as far away as Toronto, San Francisco and Colorado. My main retail outlet has been the Butchart Gardens in their garden gallery, which has captured an international market for me, allowing me to send my pieces throughout the world.
