ABOUT

Natalie is a landscape artist who paints in oils and pastel as well as water-based media.   Her aim is to create atmospheric paintings, based on observation, conveying a connection to a place she has recently visited.   Light, colour and painting from nature is her inspiration.  

She sketches and paints as much as possible from life "en plein air" and works further on paintings back in the studio, relying on recent studies, memories and notes. 

She studied Art History and Architecture at university.  Having worke
d full time for the NHS over many years, in 2023 she reduced working hours in order to focus more on her painting.
 
She takes inspiration from so many artists, but to whittle it down to a few - th
e impressionists/post-impressionists and the Scottish Colourists.  A modern inspirational hero is the late Ken Howard.   

She is married and lives in South West London near Wimbledon Common.  She has been selected on a number of occasions to exhibit at the Mall Galleries, and has also had a painting accepted for the RA summer exhibition.

A favourite quote which I will try to aspire to all of my painting life:

“The most precious thing we have as painters is our own language. It needn’t be revolutionary, but it must be personal to you and then it will be unique and precious.”

 

– Ken Howard
