“If you could put it into words, there would be no reason to paint” Edward Hopper.  

As a student Natalie was struck with awe by Munch’s “Frieze of Life”.  The sheer size of the pieces, the bold use of colour, movement and raw emotion moved her tremendously. 

Predominantly working in oils Natalie enjoys creating a sense of drama in her work.  Having always had a love of the theatre and the parallels that are played out in the wider world she delights in capturing the subtle nuances between people, often driven by love and desire.

  Natalie has been influenced by artists such as Munch, Hopper, Cindy Sherman and Jack Vettriano.  All having explored similar themes of human engagement.

Her draw to the earlier part of the last century suggests a romanticism with the past which many of her followers resonate with.  Natalie intends to spend this next year on a series of works which are pushing the realms of voyeurism a little further, using her models to depict a variety of subtly erotic situations whilst still embracing a romantic element.

My ultimate intention is to create work that engages the viewer's emotions often resonating and thus providing solace in the shared experience.

I have just taken on a commission of 26 paintings for a club in the West End.  Wow!  Thrilled at the opportunity!
