Nat is a self-taught artist from the Gold Coast who explores Australian narratives through interior spaces. She explore the beautiful and sombre (yet distinctly Australian) moments that exist within the mundane, and that are so strongly felt in moments of quiet contemplation in our own spaces. From the bathroom to the kitchen, to the local pub, these places play the silent backdrop to much of life’s ongoing - where we dissect, examine, label, and draw conclusions to our inner thoughts, troubles, and joys, leaving our distinct mark in each moment.

In house I am one of the 2 potters & by day I’m on the tools as a carpenter.. on the custom side of things. I’m very much in the experimental phase of my art, I like to bend the rules, learning through the experience and teachings to one day define my style of ceramics with the love of creations. I’m really enjoying our growth as a conscious community of artists and I’m truly excited for what we & the public achieve together!
