Natalie's in New Orleans, in her second year toward a BFA.
She's been busy curating and showing and has been married now
for over a year. There is a video link below that you must see to He Needs Me. It is just the best in so many very Gnatty ways....
and generally speaking, Natalie notes:
Definitely having fun, this is an exciting city to be young, an artist and under employed. I think I am going to be hired to do an after school program at a pre-k and elementary school. Been doing a lot of kids art classes this summer. Its kinda cramping my underemployed style but I enjoy it.
Natalie has been very busy, here are a few of her current works:
