Natalie lives in South West London near Wimbledon and paints in mixed media, watercolour and oil. She has always drawn and painted since childhood, but decided to study art history at university instead of art school. Following a painting holiday in 2011, she took up painting seriously again and started exhibiting professionally in 2018. Although mainly self-taught, she has gone on numerous courses and painting holidays where she has learnt from many experienced teachers. Natalie gains her inspiration from being outdoors in nature and from the changing seasons. Her wish is to paint expressive, atmospheric landscapes and seascapes. She is interested in how paint, colour, texture and mark-making can suggest and express, allowing the imagination to interpret a moment or scene. Exhibitions: In recent years she has exhibited at the Mall Galleries with the New English Art Club, the RBA and the Threadneedle Exhibition. In 2011 she exhibited at the Royal Academy summer exhibition. She exhibited with the Chelsea Art Society in 2018 and 2019. In 2020 she had a painting accepted for the online ING Discerning Eye exhibition, selected by David Remfry RA. In 2021 she had a painting accepted for the RBA at the Mall Galleries.
