Natalie Shau

Lives and works: Lithuania

Photographer and mixed media artist Natalie takes inspiration from fashion, jewellery and nature to create intricate portraits.


Based in Lithuania, Natalie's varied career has seen her lend her artistic talent to a range of projects. These include fashion photography, advertisements and even a stint as an art director for a short film. 

Her collection draws upon her three biggest inspirations: nature, jewellery and fashion. From Victorian costumes and Art Deco designs to animals and insects, Natalie's art is infused with vintage motifs. Each of the artworks represent a different precious gemstone: a rare product of nature which as fascinated philosophers, mystics and artists alike for centuries. 

To create her pieces, the artist takes dozens of photographs to cpature movement and the way light reflecs on hair. She then combines all of the images and creates the hair halo using digital brushes. Following this, she works on the head of the character, including the small jewels and details. 

Natalie says: "I love creating mysterious, ghostly portraits. Nature plays a big part in my work. Flowers, skies, wind, animals and insects...they can all be found in my illustrations."
