She is educated at Mukhina Art Institute. Since the 90’s she has been living and working as an artist in Stockholm. She has exhibited in art galleries, museums and galleries all over Sweden and abroad.
Natalia paints mainly in oil and acrylic.
“I am inspired by everything possible that I see in front of me, sometimes it can be small cities that I visit, sometimes groups with people. It is very different impressions that give imput to the motives in my paintings. I try to stylize and create my own way of painting. I am very interested in different combinations of colors – how they work together and what effect one can get on a canvas “
