The Accidental Artist

Hi. My name is Nathaniel Badder, and I am an (accidental) artist, author, coach, and small business owner. A self-taught photographer, I find great pleasure in the world around us and enjoy bringing the smallest details to life in new and imaginative ways. A Charm City native, I returned to Baltimore nine years ago after stints in California and New York and California again, and now live in Homeland with my dog, Earvin.

36 Letters was born in 2010 when I helped my sister with a school project. The effort resulted in a work of art with a distinctive style that was both urban and refined. Maintaining that aesthetic, 36 Letters creates photo letter art projects that transform objects found all around us into letters that spell out words and phrases. Each print is framed individually and securely mounted to a single backing. The result is a unique, hand-made wall hanging that brings local charm to homes and offices. Popular projects include names, addresses, businesses, and phrases.
