Bio

Nathalie Tierce was born in New York City and began her career in the visual arts with a focus on illustration. She graduated from The High School of Art and Design in 1985 and went on to Pratt Institute to receive a BFA in Painting. She also studied drawing and anatomy at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux Arts in Paris.

Her love affair with interiors and architecture led to her painting large scale backings as a scenic artist in Europe. Moving to Los Angeles in 1999 she began working on site specific art works for both private and public spaces in Japan and Europe to miniatures for Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland" and Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island".

Ironically, her fascination with structure is coupled with a profound sense of spacial dyslexia. The studies she makes of memory and emotion in conjunction with "place" is mirrored by her challenge in positioning elements in a rational order. Instead, form, color and texture are represented in terms of their sensual relevance.
