Natalie Williamson is a Yorkshire based artist with a passion for painting people, both from life and imagined.
Seeking expressionism and abstraction within the realm of realism, her portraits have a sense of energy and depth. Working mostly in oil paints, Natalie paints to show ordinary everyday people and objects in an uplifting and positive light, bringing their beauty to the forefront.
I paint what I want people to see more of: uplifting, inspiring and aspirational images of women, particularly those often under-celebrated or overlooked. Everyday regular beauty. Women not overly sexualised, cliched or objectified. I want my portraits to whisper “you are beautiful, you are loved, you belong”
