Natalie Williamson was born in 1984 on an organic peach orchard in Stoneville, in the hills east of Perth, West Australia. Her early years surrounded by bush-land, fruit trees and wild life continue to influence her artistic practice.
In her early teens she moved to Palmyra where she lived for 12 years. In this time she
Obtained a Bachelor of Arts from Curtin University, an Advanced Diploma of Fine Art from Central Institute of Technology, and certificates in both horticulture and floristry.
As an adult her love of nature was rekindled while walking the Bibbulmun track, a 1000km walk trail that runs from Kalamunda in the Perth hills to Albany on the southern coast. Two months walking through ever changing natural environments gave her a profound respect for the complexity of the earth’s fragile ecosystems and the sheer immensity of the world around her.
In 2012 Natalie moved to Sydney where she still resides. Working as a florist by day, she is still just as captivated by natural forms as she was as a cocoon loving, toadstool collecting, 3 year old. Today she works predominately in sculpture and textiles often using craft based techniques and incorporating materials from her immediate surroundings.
