ABOUT



Creative crusader and professional pipe-dreamer painting faces with persoNATALIE! I make art and boss my kids around all day. Lover of animals, snack and naps.

I reside in a spectacularly eclectic home in the foothills of southern Alberta and create from a cozy studio nestled therein.

Proud owner of two kids, two cats and two dogs – all boys! I feel radically outnumbered and joke about it often. But being a mother is my most sacred charge 💜



ARTIST STATEMENT

Vibrant contrasting colors combine to form audacious and expressive characters. With bold dramatic features and big gleaming eyes, these eccentric souls make unique statements both literally and through veiled metaphor. As with most art, there are layers of significance. What I, the artist am trying to convey as well as that which you, the spectator choose to interpret. I believe it takes a viewer to complete a painting so the final piece ends up being a co-creation of sorts, open to infinite interpretations.
