Humor & technique= Success for Natalie Featherston

I was so pleased to be able to meet Natalie Featherston last Friday at her opening at Meyer East Gallery on famed Canyon Road in Santa Fe. I have admired her work for years for its quirky, joyful celebration of different realms of art: innocent childish art and sophisticated professional work. Her trompe-l’oeil style is […]
