Natalie is an author, artist, illustrator and graphic designer.
In June 2022, Natalie was delighted to return to St Mary’s Works a.k.a. The Old Shoe Factory with LAC Contemporary Arts as part of RESONANCE. Her project, Cyberpunk 2.1, explored digital footprints through found objects, digital collage, drawing and film. Some of this new work is on Natalie’s Instagram @natalieknowlesart.
Natalie’s 3-metre Tudor Queens were on exhibition, as part of IN-DECISION with The Lonely Arts Club, in October. It was a diverse and compelling show at The Undercroft Gallery in Norwich. Eleven artists took part and the event included live performance drawing.
The first quarter of 2021 was dominated by the large scale drawings of the wives of Henry VIII. Also, please visit The Lonely Arts Club to view an online exhibition called MARKING TIME. Natalie’s Meditations are featured in this superb contemporary art exhibition.
May Bank Holiday brought an exciting opportunity to do project work with fellow Lonely Arts Club artists Jacqui Jones and Andy Hornett at St. Mary’s Works (a.k.a. The Old Shoe Factory). There is a write up about the Shoe Factory Weekender on the blog.
In 2020, Natalie published her second novel, Flashboy Max; Superking and the Quest for Pandora. The book has been more than ten years in the making, with the conceptual artwork having been made in 2009/2010. Check out @flashboymax on Instagram to see the previously unpublished artwork.
In April 2020, Natalie has participated in an online-only exhibition with The Lonely Arts Club. The theme of the exhibition is IN-SITU and can be viewed here: The Lonely Arts Club In-Situ. IN-SITU became a physical exhibition at the Undercroft Gallery in Norwich in September 2020.
The second edition of The Carnival Queen, a fun fiction written and illustrated by Natalie, was published in October 2019. It is available to buy here. In April 2020 it was released as a Kindle edition.
Natalie was delighted to exhibit her work with Cluster-London for the second time in May 2019.
In July 2017 Natalie gave an enormously successful presentation to an audience of artists and creatives in Chongqing, China. You can read more about the trip to China and the presentation in the blog.
Natalie welcomes opportunities and commissions for writing, illustration, graphic design and art projects.
