Hand Embellished Box Canvas Limited Edit
Born in England and living in Germany, Saudi Arabia, Kenya and New Zealand during her early childhood, Natalie finally settled in Sydney, Australia. She has good memories of growing up in these very different environments. Natalie had a love for animals and while growing up spent many hours sketching the things she loved.
At 17 she was recognised as having considerable talent and was offered an opportunity in the art studio of a Sydney-based advertising agency. Natalie became a graphic design student at the School of Graphic Design in Sydney prior to technology, when training was rigorous and the students illustration, fine art and technical studio skills were highly developed. She worked within the industry and married Chris, setting up a successful advertising art studio together.
They then moved to Brisbane, Queensland where she began to teach art classes and paint full time. Soon the demand for Natalies art increased to the point where it was impossible to continue teaching. Today, Natalie exhibits throughout the world. She says the journey has been an exciting one and it seems that her hard work and commitment is producing some of her best work yet.
"Art of course can do that. I just reflect on canvas what I see around me and interpret it in my own unique way."
A passion for shoes meant Natalie was the guest of honour at the launch of the new Jimmy Choo Couture line in Malaysia. While there she showcased her tongue-in-cheek Women with Attitude series and impressed the luxury shoe designer with her delightful canvases.
