Natalie Stopka focuses on natural materials and historical techniques to create abstract, organic drawings and prints. These meticulous, layered images incorporate plant dyes that are foraged, bartered, or grown in her studio garden. The plants provide a seasonally evolving vocabulary of texture and color rooted in the entangled forces of the natural world. Natalie’s studio is in Yonkers, New York. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and current MFA candidate in the Nomad program for Interdisciplinary Art and Regenerative Culture.
