Artist Career

The last few years have been a period of huge transformation for Natalie. During this time she’s fully consolidated her art practice, reflecting deeply and developing exciting projects and collaborations.

Natalie completed Falmouth University foundation in 1994 but life events meant she couldn’t pursue her formal training. In 2007/8 she had an intense period of creating and selling work to support her practice and after a radical overhaul to her life in 2018 started building herself a career as an artist alongside her health professional role as a chiropractor.

She is now a full-time artist living and working in Cornwall, painting in her Bude studio and teaching at the St Ives School of Painting, as well as running her own classes locally.

She recently completed 2 years of study with the Newlyn Art School which has strengthened her sense of self, her ideas and interests and given her tools to be rigorous in her critical thinking.

A significant outcome of this is her move to investigate natural materials in an effort to reduce the use of plastic-based products and create a more considered and sustainable art practice.

In spring 2023 Natalie held her first solo show 'This Land' at the Royal Cornwall Museum which debuted her explorations into natural earth pigments and writing about her beloved Cornwall landscape.

Alongside this she ran a series of workshops and discovered a love for teaching her processes.
