About

From VP of Special Operations of a huge startup company > to terminal brain cancer > to artist!

Welcome to Nathan Sexton’s Inkblot shop. Nate’s story is not your typical artist bio. Nothing about Nathan is typical. This new found talent was buried somewhere beneath numbers, coding, running and being president of operations at a highly successfully start up company in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Everything came to a halt three years ago when Nathan experienced a series of seizures, landing him in the ER. Quickly life became different. A large baseball size mass was detected. The diagnosis, Glioblastoma multiforme, with a life expectancy of 15 months. Nathan has fought hard with this crippling disease. He ran the Boston Marathon in 2017 and various other races. He changed his diet, he’s written a book and rocked our world with his art. He’s shown us all how to fight cancer with a grace and dignity unmatched. Working has become undoable because of speech and other things. Actually, most things that  provide him autonomy have been removed, so we thought….Then God said watch me show off using this guy!

At a recent weekend in Knoxville he decided to try his hand at painting. Something he’d never done before. With each and every piece his talent emerges. His perspective and color choices are unprecedented. We all stand amazed. And it’s all ink. What a cool medium he has chosen, or has it chosen him? Regardless, we stand in awe. Enjoy the show, as we have.

    This is Nate’s amazing wife and this business wouldn’t be here today without her. She helps Nate with getting the art listed, packaging it up, and shipping it out. She’s as good as they come!
