Natalie Forrester is an Irish artist, she paints using acrylics directly onto paper and then applies her art to homeware and accessories using vegan inks.
A graduate (2006) of National College of Art & Design (NCAD) Dublin, where she specialised in printed textiles, she continues to bring her flamboyant use of colour and raw tactile qualities to her abstract art.
"Own art in a way that best serves you. You don't need a wall, instead fill a space that you see everyday with a piece of art that makes you feel good."
Each abstract artwork has it's own meaning to nat, but she wishes you to interpret the art in your own way.
If 'surfing' artwork makes you feel energised, place it in a space you need extra energy during the day.
Abstract art is said to enhance the brain function:
“The systems they (art) nourish, which include our integrated sensory, attentional, cognitive, emotional, and motor capacities, are, in fact, the driving forces behind all other learning.” - Eric Jensen (Arts with the Brain in Mind) healingpowerofart.org
