When asked how her images take form, Northern artist Nathalie Parenteau promptly replies: “They take shape on their own. I just scratch the canvas with the paint brush and there they are”. Or so it seems.
Emerging from a family background which cherished the arts, she found her artistic path at an early age. A love of nature and solitude also provided the fertile breeding ground for a rich and varied painting career. She now lives in Whitehorse, Yukon, where she works as a professional artist and shares her life with fiancé Peter, and Cozette, their intriguing terrier.
Nathalie’s style is easily recognizable and is collected by people from all over the world. She works both in acrylics and oils and is known for her sensitive representation of the subject in its environment.
