BIOGRAPHY

Born in Valencia, Venezuela, Natalie Giugni has resided in South America, Italy, and America.

She began formal training in painting at the age of ten.

An early series of pastel renderings created during a year in Brazil, depicting scenes of one of the Seven Wonders of the World (the Falls du Iguacú), earned Natalie a full scholarship to Manhattan's School of Visual Arts, from where she graduated. In later life, diverse cultural experiences in Japan, Europe, and the Caribbean Islands continue to influence aesthetics in her works.
