Nataliya is known for painting dynamic movement, rich, vibrant color, and symbolic meaning. She finds rhythm and a flow in music, cities, people, capturing the way things move, grasping a sense of character and life. She is deeply intrigued with how we use language and symbols to communicate, encode, and preserve meaning. She enriches each composition with visual symbols to give her patrons a personally significant work of art.
Her work has been sold internationally and exhibited across the US including the De Young Museum in San Francisco, the General Consulate of Ukraine in San Francisco, Art People Gallery in San Francisco, Francesca Gallery in Sausalito, the House of Representatives in Washington and the San Francisco World Trade Center.
Originally born in Kyiv, Ukraine, and in 1994 came to San Francisco to attended the School of the Arts, and graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in the Interdisciplinary Studies of Psycholinguistics in 2007.

Ivanov.
