Nigel Goble was born in Edmonton, Alberta in the Spring of
1972 and has loved drawing and painting since a very young
age. With a continuing drive and passion to excel in commercial

by friends Gordon Johnston and Raine Dowell , Goble was more

much a possibility and set out to develop and refine his talent.
