She has exhibited in many places including the botanical gardens, Elysium Gallery and the Norwegian church Cardiff. Natalie’s paintings depict the social relationships through bold use of colour and space. The portrayal of interpersonal dynamics is engaging yet tense. The push pull between tenderness and tension trying to capture identity and social documentary with the focus on snap-shot compositions of everyday life. Creating a sense of ambiguous tension, emptiness, boredom and anxiety.

As well as showing her paintings as part of the Art Drop 19 group, Natalie will also be exhibiting a complete series of her intimate pop art mono print & drawing portraits of heads downstairs in Oriel 2.
