ARTIST INFO: Natalie has been surrounded by and loved art from the very beginning. She was born in Arizona, raised in Glenwood Springs, CO and has now moved back to where it all began. In the entirety of her schooling, art was always her favorite subject and painting her specialty and in 2004 Natalie was awarded the Jan Warden art scholarship. Shortly after graduation she attended Colorado Mountain College for Watercolor and Drawing.
After her nephew Oliver was born, and the need for amazing birthday cakes became a hot trend, her creative fire was re-ignited. Renegade Cakes was formed out of her home kitchen and she became a master of memorable 3D painted desserts. After years of producing many unforgettable, yet short lived, edible masterpieces she dusted off the paintbrushes. In 2013 Natalie became an active member of the Fine Arts Community, producing and exhibiting her Mixed Media and Acrylic paintings in numerous shows, galleries and was voted bronze “best artist” for the Glenwood Springs Post Independent and bronze “best semi-professional artist” by the Glenwood Springs Art Guild.
To this day, her style continues to evolve and change. Her general artistic goals are to create timeless works that stir the emotions, to use color and mix all types of art without fear, and always generate pieces that she would display in her own home. “Schmearing” together modern art with landscapes and a harmless skull here and there, Natalie’s past and present works typically have an edgier feel about them.
Within a rock-solid foundation of support is Natalie’s father, Chris Wurtsmith, a master in stipple and pin striping among an ongoing list of additional creative outlets… the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree. Finding endless inspirations from this amazing universe and it’s beings, Arizona’s majestic skies and landscapes, dream beaches/oceans, human nature, her mineral collection and infinite other oddities, Natalie continues to use her art as her most authentic expression.
