Holladay resident Nathan Pinnock first began getting into art in the second grade.
 
“I was a big reader so I would see all of these books that would say, illustrated by this artist or that artist and I always wanted to do that,” Pinnock said.
 
Pinnock turned that interest into his career as a professional artist. He does a lot of illustration work for magazines and books, as well as paintings for people’s homes and businesses. He also teaches private lessons a couple times a week at his studio. Pinnock was selected by the Holladay Arts Council as the Artist of the Month.
 
Pinnock drew and painted all the way through school and took both art and painting classes because of his passion.
 
“After school, I decided I was going to go to school to be an illustrator and have my own studio, and I just have a great time doing it,” Pinnock said.
 
The subjects of his work are primarily people.
 
“I like people. I like painting them. I like learning people’s personalities and try to make their personalities come out in the paintings,” Pinnock said. “I have done several really big family portraits for people who had little kids. I tried to make each child come out in each of those paintings.”
 
Pinnock said he enjoys the process of painting, turning the idea into a finished piece and laying down the paint in interesting ways. He said he hopes people see interesting things about the people he paints.
 
“I hope people’s character comes out in the art. I also like to do rich compositions with landscapes and things,” Pinnock said. “I really want them to enjoy the piece. I like to show the interplay of light and shadow.”
 
Residents can find his work at nathanpinnock.com, at local art shows or at his studio.
 
“My studio is open for people to come by and look at my art,” he said.
 
The Holladay Arts Council is always looking for more local artists to be recognized as the Artist of the Month. Residents are encouraged to nominate a local artist by filling out a nomination form at www.holladayarts.org or by contacting Lisa O’Bryan at ceobyran@aol.com.
