Natalie (she/her) is a multidisciplinary artist from London whose work focuses on people and the impact of our personal histories. Her sensitivity to materials and flexible approach, honoured as a ‘toolkit’, see her working across a range of media including drawing, painting, printmaking and animation.
Natalie embraces the foundations of her practice: materiality, shadows and texture. She makes some of her inks, paints and pastels which enables her to connect with and understand their potential. Natalie’s work draws the viewer in by highlighting the intimacy in quieter moments, with cropped compositions and attention to shadows. Scale and rigour are imperative to her process and her textured surfaces make the work feel sculptural.
She is currently exploring her grandparents' experiences of coming to London, from Dominica in 1960 and Spain in 1965 respectively. It covers themes of immigration, generational trauma and perseverance, balanced with humour through sentimental family stories which are recorded in a small book that she carries daily.
Natalie studied BA (Hons) in Illustration at the University for the Creative Arts. She has created work for Parlon Film, and developed graphics for charitable organisations such as the Museum of Everything and Forward Arts Foundation alongside private commissions. She is a Trustee at Packed Lunch and Content Manager for Middleground magazine.
