Artist : Natalie Featherston

One of the country’s most innovative and accomplished young artists, Natalie Featherston works exclusively in the centuries-old realm of trompe l’oeil to create dazzling narrative paintings combining the virtuosity of a Dutch Master with the vision of a thoroughly modern mind. The Chicago Sun Times has described her paintings as “artful beyond just illusion and trickery; they are truly masterful still lifes made with both craft and wit.”

COMMISSIONS: Over the years, Natalie has painted many commissions for clients in her Young Artist Shows Promise series. She can work from original children’s drawings, old Polaroid photographs, and in one memorable instance, employed a stuffed plush toy to create one-of-a-kind pieces of art which lovingly capture a treasured memory. She welcomes inquiries on commissions, saying, “Being asked to paint a special piece of art for someone makes me happy- it’s the ultimate compliment, helping someone enjoy a memory through my art.” To discuss a commission painting by Natalie, click the “How Can We Help” button and let us know your needs.
