Natalie Brake is a Canadian Abstract Artist currently living on Vancouver Island, British Columbia (traditional Coast Salish, Nuu chah nulth, and Kwakiutl territory). Born in Calgary, Alberta, she began her career in the arts as a flamenco dancer under the direction of internationally acclaimed performer Fiona Malena (2004-2007). After an injury forced her to pivot, Natalie began experimenting with oil painting as an abstract expressionist, and over the following decade lived and worked as a painter in Japan, Mexico and Hawaii. Natalie has studied various art forms including acrylic glazing, fluid art and drawing.
More recently, Natalie began working with epoxy resin and has received a tremendous response from collectors and the public at large. She currently works out of her studio in Victoria, BC, with collectors throughout Canada, the United States, Mexico and the UK.
