There’s something about meeting someone on the other side of the earth that’s a bit uncanny. What’s even cooler is staying touch with that person over 8 years and watching them evolve creatively, bringing art prints or even arts organizations into being. This long tail connection is how Natalie Menacho and I became acquainted, having met in Northern India in 2006 while enjoying our respective globe trotting travels across this beautiful planet.
Natalie has been discovering and creating before that and ever since, launching her career as an artist, and being fiercely connected to nature, art, and the need to make stuff. She works in mixed media, using watercolor, archival ink, and acrylics, all of which come together flawlessly in her recent work. We’re excited to see her evolve as an artist & a person, because she’s just the type of individual to do big, colorful, live-affirming work.
We’re glad she’s chosen art.
