Natalie Perks is a Queenstown based artist, born in Wellington and trained in Whanganui. She has worked as a makeup artist in Auckland for 17 years in TV and film and recently made the move to Queenstown with her young family. There she is painting and building her e-commerce business.
“I’m an abstract artist with an obsession of building layers in my art work. Currently I’m working with acrylics and watercolour for quick drying and less of a clean up than oils. I also love to add anything I can get my hands on to add to the paintings, gel pens, opal dust, pencil and charcoal. You can find me each day in my studio and staring out the window to a glorious view of lake Wakatipu working away, fuelled by coffee and cake.”
