Natalie Day is an abstract landscape painter who uses natural materials to tell a story of the land. She describes herself as a 'natural world artist'.
In 1994 she completed a foundation course at Falmouth University but life events did not allow her to pursue her passion for art until 2018, when she started building her artistic career alongside her health professional role as a chiropractor. Returning to her roots in Cornwall, she then completed two years of study with Newlyn Art School.
She is now (2023) a guest tutor at the St Ives School of Painting, School of Outdoor Art, and runs her own art classes in Bude.
In 2023 she joined Prime Women Artists, a supportive and creative network for women artists of all disciplines in Cornwall.
Kate Reeve-Edwards has said of her work: "Natalie’s work explores the nature of home. Having grown-up in Cornwall, it investigates her personal relationship with the county and the history of the land. Her process begins in the earth, routing in geology to fathom and forage natural pigments such as red clay and yellow ochre. Out of this communion with soil she builds reimaginings of the landscape, constructing and understanding her place within it. "
