About Nat Kalbach:
Nathalie is a self-taught mixed media artist. She was born in Germany and lived most of her adult life in Hamburg before moving to the United States in September 2013. She now lives in Jersey City, NJ.
Her early love of paint was squelched by an art teacher who told her she had no talent. She worked as a paralegal for seventeen years and might have remained in the wrong profession had she not discovered mixed media painting in 2004.
Nat regained confidence in her creativity and spent the last decade exploring the possibilities of creating dimension and texture by layering different materials and paint media. Her projects have been published in several art, craft and hobby magazines as well as mixed media books. By 2011 she was able to give up working as a paralegal to become a full-time artist.
She taught workshops in Europe, Canada, the U.S., Australia, Israel, Malaysia and online. Since Spring 2015 she is Mixed Media Workshops at Pratt Institute for the School of Continuing and Professional Studies. In 2016 she released four Acrylic Paint workshop DVD’s with ArtistNetwork TV (Colorful Foundations, Mediums Demystified, Raw Canvas Staining, and Creating Texture Canvases) . Nat’s artwork is licensed through StencilGirl Products, Stampendous and ArtFoamies .
In late spring 2017 her Mixed Media book with North Light Books will be released.
