BIOGRAPHY

Natalie Wadlington was born in Modesto, California in 1992. She received her MFA from the Cranbook Academy of Art in 2020.

In her work, Wadlington figuratively portrays relationships in their different hues. She represents, mainly in the rapport of humans to animals, humane symbolic scenes, spanning love to conflict, to internal struggles.

Wadlington is currently based in East Texas where she continues to create.

“More and more, I find myself in complete wonderment at nature. This year has taught me how to live in a space of unknowing, and I now bring that perspective to all forms of looking. In nature as in life, there remain so many mysteries that are locked away in the things outside ourselves, so that all I can do is look.” (Natalie Wadlington, 2020).
