Canadian artist Natalie Green was born in 1968, has been producing artwork most of her life, and began painting seriously in 1994. Natalie told us...
I started identifiable drawing at the age of four, albeit my horses had their legs all on one side! I went camping in the wilderness with my family regularly growing up, and developed an enduring interest in the natural world, which comes out through my art.
Up until I was 25, I worked exclusively in graphite, pastel, and watercolor pencil crayons. At that point, after a dry spell, I decided to try watercolors to break my creative block. I used watercolors for 10 years, and then I started using acrylics.
I now specialize in acrylic paintings of endangered species; I donate paintings and prints yearly to various conservation societies in North America.
