About the Artist

Natalie Oswald (Seattle) received 2008 GAP Award funding for supplies necessary for continuation of her current painting series. She seeks to explore nature and the decorative arts through painting. In Curiosities, birds, beasts, flora, and other “curious objects” are juxtaposed with the somewhat formal aspects of decorative art. In her work, Natalie has expanded her use of materials to include faux finishing techniques and hand-carved printmaking blocks. The funds will also be used to market Curiosities for upcoming shows in the summer and fall of 2008.
