Natalie de Morney
Natalie de Morney was born in Cape Town in 1980 and raised in Elsies River, a township in the Cape Flats. She currently lives in East London. She is a fine art graduate with majors in painting & ceramics from Walter Sisulu University. A successful civil engineer until at the age of 33, she left this career behind to follow her passion of becoming the artist she always dreamt of since a little girl. After a year of exploring with little to no experience, she was led to joining a drawing class held by a retired fine art lecturer who encouraged her to go back to university & study fine art. Into her late 30’s she started tapping into her intuition and connecting to nature and the spiritual realm, capturing her introspective and healing journey. This led her to conduct her post-graduate research on how to use art, spirituality and nature to heal. In 2019 she participated in the New Vanguard with Berman Contemporary which has reconnected her love for ceramics. Her works illustrate her journey of healing and transformation.
