Nathalie is a french artist (b 1979) currently living and working in Paris.
After completing an MSci in Mathematics at Imperial College London in 2001 she spent 9 years working in the financial services industry in the City of London. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art from City & Guilds of London Art School in 2012.

Her paintings are about a spontaneous experience of nature and an always changing and flowing reality. Viewers are invited into the imaginary, where they experience a fluid and vibrant world of light and colour. She has been exploring nature from different points of view, up close to discover its depths, and further away to explore a wider expanse of the landscape.

An intuitive process guides me, where the painting organically evolves.
A process of taking natural forms such as flowers or a landscape with a strong physical structure, and de-constructing it.
Shapes and details are radically simplified to find nature’s essential form.
She is also interested in exploring rhythm, and how organic and natural patterns are used to create a feeling of movement and a sense of balance and harmony.
