Natalie Waldburger is currently living in Toronto Canada. She received her B.A. specializing in Women’s Studies at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. In 1998, she graduated with Honours from the Ontario College of Art and Design receiving the Drawing and Painting Department Medal, the highest award in her department. Natalie has taught at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in the Media Arts Department where she completed an MFA in 2004. Currently she is represented by Bau-Xi Gallery in Toronto and Vancouver and is a faculty member of the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto.
Natalie has been working in the medium of encaustic for 15 years. The large to mid-scale encaustic works are primarily figurative. The subject of identity and self-portraiture are tools used to develop a Canadian voice from the point of view of a first generation Swiss and Filipina immigrant.
Since graduation Natalie has received provincial and federal grants for her artwork, which she has been exhibiting since 1994. Her paintings are represented in various public, private and corporate collections in Europe, North America, and Australia.
