Natalie Lowe creates the most wonderful art using String and Nails, having recently tried one of her pieces myself from one of her kits, I have such admiration for her art. The pieces she creates are utterly brilliant and we hope you like them as much as we do.
Here Natalie tells us a bit about herself:
Hi I’m Natalie, I started String ArT & me in May 2019.
I was due to go back to work from maternity leave & couldn’t face leaving my youngest to work full time. I am a mum to three boys 13, 9 & 1, so I thought I’d give string art a go. I enjoyed it from the moment I started, but it doesn’t happen over night, it takes a lot of practice I’m still learning & I still make mistakes, but we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t & we learn from them. I certainly have.
I love how versitile string art is, I will give anything a go & I’ve done, names, animals, business logos, Christmas trees & Snowmen, basically anything I’m asked to do I will give it a go.
Each piece is unique & made entirely by hand by me except the wood which is cut by my hubby, then it’s sanded, painted, painted again, nailed & strung. My favorite bit is the stringing, I get to see the piece come alive & when it’s done I sit back look at it & smile because so much love & care goes into each piece I make.
I never ever thought that I’d come as far as I have in only a year. But I have & I’m enjoying every second of it. I can’t wait to see what the future holds AND I can’t wait to get back out to the shows & show of my work.
We can’t wait to see you back at the markets too Natalie! xxx
