Nathalie Delesalle is a mixed-media artist passionate about nature, colour and mark making.
Nathalie grew up in Canmore, AB, a small town in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. She had exposure to the arts and culture at a very young age. Ever since she can remember, Nathalie created with textiles, clay, and jewelry. After travelling and attending Universities of Victoria and McGill, Nathalie returned to her hometown to teach French Immersion. It wasn’t until a decade later that life events prompted her to follow her artist ambitions.
Art education began at the Alberta College of Art and Design and Red Deer College. Nathalie then relocated to the West Coast where she attended Emily Carr University of Art and Design, The Artway Studios and various other workshops taught by well established mixed-media artists. It is here that she found her creative niche.
Nathalie’s mixed-media work is mostly abstract in style and is process driven; it is a bold and dynamic exploration of colour, gesture, mark-making and composition. She is inspired by the Abstract Expressionists. Nathalie also has an avid interest in photography and dabbles in life-drawing.
Nathalie has exhibited in Vancouver, BC, the Lower Mainland, and Victoria, BC. Her work can be found in private collections in Canada and Europe.
Currently living in beautiful Brentwood Bay, BC, on Vancouver Island, Nathalie continues to be inspired by the beauty of her surroundings.
