Natalia Rudnicki is an artist living in rural northwest New South Wales with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Sydney College of the Arts, with a major in Printmaking; and Diploma of Education from The University of Sydney. Natalia has worked as a Visual Arts teacher, and has exhibited and sold work in Australia and overseas. Her influences are places, colours, voices and expression. Her heritage influences her linoprints and are based on Polish paper cut-outs of wildlife and flora in her surroundings. As a printmaker she enjoys mark making and its sculptural quality, whether a cut in lino or etching on metal – this is an intimate relationship where she becomes a part of the process. As a painter the use of colour is integral to the meanings behind each visual narrative. Recent works in painting and pastels, capture the colour and intensity of the natural beauty of our Australian flora and landscape, often weaving Polish influences through subject matter.
