My name is Natalie Reilly. I grew up and currently reside in Southern California. Sunny days seem to be endless here which makes it perfect for photographing subjects for my paintings. Many of my pieces are flowers and nature inspired. My paintings focus on bold colors and clean lines. Some of my paintings focus on a simple subject, and others tell more of a story. Much of my work on canvas is created with a constant blend of bright acrylic color. I believe each piece of artwork should be a challenge for me to create. Taking a painting from an empty white canvas to something unique and captivating is the best feeling in the world! This is the inspiration that keeps me painting until my fingers ache.
