Nathan Rice was born and raised in San Francisco and graduated from Lewis and Clark College in 2003 with a BA in fine art and sociology. His drawings, objects, and illustrations try to capture the spontaneity of his own thoughts and explore play, objects in space, and the joys and sorrows of parenthood.  His current projects include reimagining playscape designs, and collaborating on redesigning the early childhood experience science playground at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. He is enrolled in the Applied Craft + Design program, a collaborative MFA program between Pacific Northwest College of Art and Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland OR.
