Natalie Brake

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.

Natalie’s work is a response to managing and expressing her sensory condition known as Synesthesia, a neurological condition in which the brain has cross-connections between the senses of taste, hearing, sight, smell and touch. In this case, Natalie’s senses of audio, visual and touch trigger both colour and taste. This is expressed in both process and end
result of her paintings.

Her abstract art strikes a rhythmical balance of contemporary and organic composition, often evoking a feeling of movement, nature and energy.

Her work can be seen in galleries and with art collectors throughout Canada,
the United Kindgdom, the United States and Mexico.
