Born in 1976 in Serov, The Urals, Russia. Natalya was inspired by the richness of the woods, mountains, rivers, lakes and the jewels in the area. After Art School she studied Graphic Art at the State Pedagogikal Institut in N-Tagil.
Following her education she taught art in a small northern town before marrying and moving to St Petersburg. She worked as a guide in a 19th century Isaakievsky Cathedral as well as in a stained glass window workshop. Natalya also started to paint at this time.
She believes her task as an artist is not only to reflect the world but to create another world. Her vision of the world is a bright, colourful one. Despite the cold and damp of St Petersburg, Natalya has created bright, colourful compositions which she hopes will encourage a cheerful perception of life. She seeks to create a lightness and feeling of freedom in her work. She travels and records, draws and paints the impressions different landscapes have had on her as well as from memory.
Since 1995, Natalya has exhibited her work extensively in Russia, Spain, Poland, The Netherlands and the UK. Her paintings are in private collections in Russia, France, Great Britain, Czechoslovakia, China, Italy and the USA.
