Natalie Roberts is a self-taught artist who creates soft pastel paintings with a notable style of bold lines, vibrant colors, and explorations of shadow. Her paintings often explore the feminine side of sexuality and emotion.
Her current Goddess series incorporates symbolic elements drawn from personal, mythic, and archetypal imagery. Storyboard and inspiration photographs are shot by her husband, Brian Roberts, in collaboration with local models and an amazing support and technical crew.
Natalie currently lives in the Tampa Bay area and is available for commission artwork.
