Natalie Briney is a Western Australian artist who resides and works near the Blackwood River in Margaret River.
Her art inspiration is drawn from the ever-changing vista of Australian native fauna and flora. It is this connection to the colours and sounds of the traditional lands of the Wadandi and Pibelman people that she seeks to capture on canvas.
To create her artwork, Natalie uses old book pages torn up and glued to canvas. She then employs moulding and crackle paste to add texture and depth. She also uses various techniques, such as stencils, stamping, pen or pencil scribbling, acrylic paint, crayon, and oil sticks, all of which contribute to the creation of a visually and tactilely engaging piece of art.
Since late 2023, Natalie has been working on a new body of works for her exhibition at Voyager Estate Winery, in Margaret River. ‘The Rose Collection’ is deeply connected to the land, capturing the diversity and beauty of the 50-plus rose varieties found in Voyager Estate's white-walled Cape Dutch-inspired gardens.
Natalie's artwork will be on display daily in the Voyager Estate Cellar Door from 15 December to 31 January. Visit from 10am – 5pm, Monday through Sunday, and immerse yourself in the beauty of 'The Rose Collection'.
