Natalya Romanovsky grew up in Moldova, a country located between Ukraine and Romania. As a child she knew she would be an artist, her talent was noticed by her teacher who told her mother to give her brushes and paint and the child will know what to do.
Romanovsky studied at Chisinau Art College, earning a degree in graphic design. She enjoyed art school and entered her field upon graduation working for a popular magazine for children. At the same time she contributed to a series of children's publications. However her heart was in painting, and despite a few shows around the city, she became frustrated with the local art market. In 1993 Romanovsky immigrated to the US. Moving to America opened a whole new door for the curious and energetic artist. She found some initial support from a local gallery and began painting with a new enthusiasm.
Natalya incorporates many basic techniques and styles, yet, she is able to give them her own interpretation. Natalya’s paintings are a combination of vibrant color, rich texture, and much movement, which makes them extremely exciting.
There exists a mysterious and intriguing ambience in every painting, reminiscent of something surrealistic, leaving the viewer to find a simple meaning of life in each one.
Romanovsky begins her creative journey by first sketching a rough idea on the canvas. Then as each shape and object takes shape, she believes each "finds it has soul and speaks to me with a playful spirit." Once these souls are found, the painting is completed.
These semi-abstract paintings are from the heart and incredibly honest in their presentation.
