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.
She recently completed 2 years of study with the Newlyn Art School which has consolidated her ideas and interests and given her tools to be rigorous in her critical thinking. She is now a tutor at the St Ives School of Painting, The School of Outdoor Art and runs her own classes in Bude.
