Natalie Tarasar is interested in figurative abstraction as a tool to communicate emotion. Her work typically entails still snapshots of the human form from varying angles overlaid on top of each-other. She experiments with multimedia, acrylics, pastels, and oils. She also is working on a Giving back to Wildlife Series of endangered species to support conservation efforts.
Natalie was born and raised in Colorado, which fueled her creativity. She moved to the Washington DC area to pursue a career in international development and environmental conservation, where she currently works at the World Wildlife Fund. She continues to pursue her artwork independently in her free time. She was the youngest artist to be juried into the Alexandria, VA Torpedo Factory’s Visiting Artist in Residence program and is a current member of the Arlington Artist Alliance.
