Artist’s happy vibes

Masterton artist and author Natalia Turina’s ‘Happy Vibes’ art exhibition is on show at Carterton’s Heart of Arts gallery [HOA] until September 14.

Turina said: “I’ve been an artist for seven and a half years now, and although I had a huge break from creating art, I surprised myself when I came back. I thought, ‘I can still paint and draw well enough’ – it’s never too late to do things we enjoy doing.

“I incorporate emotions into my work while also creating my own semi-abstract style.”

While Turina loves to use vibrant colours in her work to represent the beauty of nature, she also uses a layered approach that gives her own unique look to her artwork.

Turina said people have described her work as “art that reflects joy and happiness, giving individuals a sense of visual healing”.

“I love creating pieces of artwork based on a customer’s request – from their own photos and ideas,” she said.

“Commission work is challenging but super interesting to paint as it feels like a little adventure. You never know how people will react when they receive them, and luckily for me, I have only received positive responses.”

Meanwhile, Turina volunteers at HOA gallery in her spare time and has also found the time to publish five picture books.

HOA displays local artworks created in various mediums and supports community events, art workshops, and local youth groups.

    Open Wednesday to Friday, 10am–4pm; Saturday and Sunday, 10am–2pm.
