Natalie Toplass

Born in Cheshire and now living in Shropshire Natalie graduated from the University of Central Lancashire and later specialised in Stage Set Design at the Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.

Since 2004 she has been working on a series of intricate flower and bird portraits and has had a number of well-received exhibitions throughout Great Britain

Natalie’s paintings create an impact of emotion and atmosphere direct in their manipulation of texture, light and darkness.
Her work is often described as photorealistic but her interest is more with colour
and richness of texture. The scale of her work is an important feature providing a fresh view of a common subject.

“My painting process is related to the luminosity between layers, the subject is just the starting point for an abstract study of transparency and form.”
