Artist Statement




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 or music 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.
