I have followed Natasha Wescoat‘s work for a while now. I don’t know why I hadn’t blogged about her before.
For those of you who don’t know her, Natasha Wescoat is an American artist, from Michigan, who comes from a family of artists, including the famous painter Georgia O’Keeffe. Her work is perfectly described as “Fantasy art and pop surrealism dreamscapes”.
Natasha has painted and illustrated full-time since 2004 and has sold 1000+ original works worldwide. Her work has been featured on TV, movies and books.
She is one busy painter, when she’s not in her studio creating wonderful works of fantasy, she paints at tech events, conferences, trade shows and festivals, gives talks at schools and colleges, and is available for live painting classes!
I found Natasha on the web via her whimsical swirly trees. Her series ‘Jewelled trees’ are colorful dreamscapes. I like her use of color specially when she uses teal/cyan/turquoise-ish shades (ehem I go nuts for those shades). I also like the movement in each of her pieces. I wish I could paint a tree as beautifully as she does. Her trees aren’t dull and stiff, her trees are vibrant and full of life.
Her trees tell me stories. I can look at them for long periods of time and always get transported to fantastic worlds.
Natasha Wescoat’s work is definitely an Oasis. Enjoy!
