As a child, Natalie enjoyed making things and she naturally gravitated toward becoming a 3-D artist. Influenced by extensive and frequent travels around the world, Natalie’s work is a global fusion of modern and ethnographic styles. Whether traveling to Rio de Janeiro, Johannesburg or the Outback in Australia, she recognizes common indigenous threads and integrates them with organic and man-made materials into her work.
Some of Natalie’s most recent influences come from spending time in the South African diamond mines and living in the majestic Teton Mountains. The scale of natural spaces and a fascination in the geometric simplicity of crystalline polyhedron forms have manifested themselves into an evolving body of work. Rock-filled gabion forms contrast with her colored steel crystalline polyhedrons. These installations range from two to twenty cubic feet and function in both interior and exterior spaces.
Natalie’s clients and work range from private art collectors and public projects, to upscale residential and commercial spaces such as Bar Louie in Chicago. Her work has been featured on the radio, on TV’s “Good Morning America”, in national interior magazines, and newspapers internationally.
Natalie obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts, majoring in Sculpture, from Brighton University in England. She came to the United States on a full-merit scholarship, and attained her Masters in Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She followed her formal training with an Artist in Industry Residency at the Kohler factory in Wisconsin and has taught at University level in Texas and Wyoming. Natalie’s 9/11 Memorial submission was a finalist in the design competition and has been exhibited in New York.
