Nathalie is from Germany but has lived in the U.S. for 9 years. She’s a painter with a favorite subject of old buildings. Nathalie researches the building, its history, and who may have lived or worked there. This research affects her color and design choices. She also uses an art journal, to test out ideas, try new techniques, and play. Nathalie also teaches online workshops, and has put together the group of online videos called Creative Jumpstart. For this year’s Jumpstart, she has 38 artists who have shared a technique or project that you can do to jumpstart your year. Nathalie is also the author of the book Artful Adventures in Mixed Media.
