Artist Statement

The mountains… so lush, so fertile, so alive with infinite colors at sunrise… the endless sky with clouds that mimicked the mountains they sat above… the smell of pine, oak, black laurel, fertile dirt, rain forrest… taking in the area with all my senses awoke what had been dormant in me for so long. I couldn’t help but surrender to the beauty, surrender to the Great Spirit, and take it all in. When I paint, plein air, I am able to be completely present, living the present moment right then and there, feeling my heart and spirit just be with the Great Spirit and all its beautiful creations. This body of work, rendered in watercolor, was created between fall of 2019 and fall of 2020. 

Natalie Richardson Laux is a visual artist with a BFA from the University of Florida and mother of two daughters, Ani and Clara. She is a dual-citizen as she was born in St. Paul Minnesota and has lived in Cochabamba, Bolivia, the country of her mother’s origin. She started drawing and painting at age five and continues to do so every morning. She also works full-time with a public health non-profit and hopes to work as a full-time artist one day.
