Michael and Renee
Natalia Brewster is a native Russian artist living in Houston, Texas, USA. She is a former attorney and current corporate executive who works hard, dreams big and views life as a positive venture.
Art and music have been life-long passions for Natalia. She was identified at an early age as having gifts in those areas and was invited to attend the prestigious Svetlanov Children’s Art School where she received five years of formal training in the areas of painting and music.
Natalia’s paintings are known for their whimsical themes and vibrant colors which have been described as an “Explosion of Happiness.” Her works are currently shown in galleries in the USA as well as included in private collections internationally.
In Natalia’s words……….
“Our life is filled with colors. No matter how tough the day is…no matter how frustrated or stressed out we are…let your soul radiate love and joy. My love is red and yellow. My serenity is white and turquoise. My passion is orange and violet.
Please allow me to bring these brilliant colors of love and joy to your life”.
Born in Cordoba, Veracruz, Mexico and is a graduate from University of Las Americas. She developed a passion for art as a child by watching her father work on his oil paintings. Art and painting has always been part of her life. A “self-taught” painter, Patty works with water colors, charcoals and acrylics. She prefers acrylics because of the bright and vibrant colors. She is most inspired by ideas, moments and situations in life. She enjoys transforming these events into a beautiful works of art with every stroke of the brush. Patty loves to use texture in some of her pieces, but is most passionate when creating abstract paintings because each piece conveys a different intriguing message to the audience.

I am a self-taught artist and illustrator from Scottsdale, Arizona. Although I began my career in marketing and education, my need to color outside the lines has led me to pursue my creative interests on a deeper level than I could find at my desk. Currently, I am living and working in Navasota, Texas, as an artist-in-residence at the Horlock Gallery
