I am Northwest Artist Natalie Brown and I create metal art, mostly in copper. But I use other metals too.
Well, actually, I am a storyteller at heart…a storyteller who uses metal as a way to conceptualize and actualize the story I am sharing. You may find that my pieces have an edgy look about them. They can be quirky. They are fun and whimsical…but different. With inspiration derived from animal physiology and a love of the fantastic, grotesque and absurd, each of my sculptures is unique and personable. THAT’s because each piece has a story to tell. Most of the pieces I create…most of the pieces I bring to life…represent elements, emotions and creatures in my own, personal, crazy world…a mystical, mythical world that has been with me since MY beginning in time.
Also, as an artist, I am inquisitive…ever searching for truths. I like to dive into the hearts and inspirations of the mind, mine and others’, looking for forgotten truths and hidden wisdoms. Sometimes I find secrets that are meant to remain behind closed doors. Far too often I find despair and pain or oppression. But it is my belief that we each possess indestructible strengths. And it is my hope that through my art I can share a message of optimism and courage…a message of inspiration and transformation…by speaking directly to the meaning of the Spirit of Life. Together we comfort one another, we teach one another…and through perseverance, together we can succeed!
I invite you to review my website at www.steelcoyote.com. It’s new and evolving…so more content will be added over time. Some of my work is listed on Etsy at
www.etsy.com/shop/SteelCoyote. You can also follow me online on FACEBOOK, and in the future, at my art blog.
And of course, contact me directly if you want to talk or want me to design a special piece of art or some other piece for you. I do that all the time and would love the opportunity to bring your concepts and ideas to life!
Thanks for stopping by!
