093: Nathalie’s Studio

On today’s podcast I’m talking to my friend, Nathalie Kalbach about her new art studio and her obsession with architecture and the history of the places she’s lived.


Nathalie is a self-taught mixed media artist, born in Germany and now living in Jersey City, NJ.


Nathalie’s projects have been published in several art, craft and hobby magazines as well as mixed media books.


Nathalie has taught workshops all over the world and wrote Artful Adventures in Mixed Media – Art and Techniques inspired by Observation & Experience.


You can read more about her book and workshops, and see lots of her art on her website.


Here’s a look at Nathalie’s Studio:
