Natalie is an Abstract painter living and working in Vancouver, BC. She has a diploma in 'Environmental Graphic Design' (Grant MacEwan University, Edmonton, AB) but is primarily a self-taught painter. She works purely on an intuitive level and non-objectively. Working in Acrylic paint, colours are not predetermined nor is the composition. A surface of solid colour(s) is applied, markings or shapes are sketched, layers of paint and medium are added for texture, and only after this are finer details added by the addition or subtraction of paint. Often shapes appear in her work that lead to a more representational theme.
" I want the viewer to draw his or her own conclusion as to the meaning, and I endeavour to evoke various emotional responses; from meditative through to kinetic/visceral. "
Natalie's work is found in private collections in Western and Eastern Canada.
