Natalie Price is a multi-disciplinary artist. Her extraordinary commitment to creative work led her to complete eight years in third level education, developing professional skills in graphic design, illustration and model making. Natalie has a passion for the craft of physical model making. She pays great attention to detail when creating her charming illustration models. Natalie spends hours delving through all sorts of interesting materials, from piles of shiny fabric and boxes of watch and clock parts, to drawers of unusual beads and jewels, or whatever she finds at the bottom of her treasure chest. As well as building models from raw materials such as modelling clay, wood, and wire, Natalie’s creative spirit often rescues items from the scrap heap; the lid of an old make-up bottle is rejuvenated as a miniature coal bucket or a pen holder, and an old watch casing is transformed into a picture frame.
