Natalie Marie's Art and Thingswww.ArtPal.com/nhawkins
Hello my name is Natalie Hawkins and welcome to my ArtPal art gallery. I am currently a student and thought I would share my art a bit to see how others feel about it, so let me know how I'm doing if you have the desire and the time. I typically paint surreal portraits or figures. I like my art to have a sense that something is weird or off, like a featureless portrait, or a headless body. I think it's fun to make something that is on the brink of disturbing, but is still dream-like and intriguing. I'm all about just creating cool and unique images. Other times I create what I like to call "Trash Art" which is just humorous, political, satirical, profane, or just fun and random. I like to paint on things to refurbish them like coasters, boxes, frames, skateboards, anything I can find. I want everything I own to be something interesting to look at. I also like my art to be detailed and usually buy the smallest brushes I can find. My scuba instructor once told me "look for the small things, and you'll never be disappointed." Of course he was talking about scuba diving, but I like to apply that thought to my artwork as well. I enjoy pieces that make you look at them for a long time whether it is because of the detail, craft, or simply the content and message of the piece. I hope you enjoy my pieces as much as I have enjoyed creating them. You can email me at email@example.com for any questions, business, friendship, or ArtPal related things.
