About The Artist

The roots of my creativity are in Africa. The people, the vegetation and multifaceted landscapes of Zimbabwe were to me vividly bright and beautiful.

I moved to the UK in 2003, with one year away (2003-2004), accepting a visiting student opportunity in Jerusalem, Israel. I was based in Wimbledon up until 2009 and then moved to Surrey and now live in Kent. I have relished the cultural richness that is here and the beauty of the English countryside.

I look back at my mentors with gratitude. Beginning at primary boarding school, I remember with thanks the artist and teacher, Jean Peterson, who started an art club. My very first exhibition entry was done through her. From then on I thought of myself as an artist.

Estelle Byrne was my inspiring and gifted art teacher at secondary school. I notice on the Queen Elizabeth School Facebook page, she is often mentioned with affection. Her classes were the highlight of my week.

I mostly work in acrylic and watercolour. When I work from nature I prefer close up views, making the play of light the main ingredient. I am aware that I am drawing inspiration from my own story behind the subject, the ongoing script of everything observed.

I love the human form and face. I look for subtle expressions that reveal personality, the story behind the eyes.

Awards / Exhibitions / Career

I studied at the School of Art at the Bulawayo Technical College. Under Adele Walters I discovered and developed my strength in life drawing and received the college’s Fine Art Award (1969). That same year, a class outing to the park to paint outdoors initiated my love for watercolours.

I went on to a long career in Harare, mostly within the textile industry. I took on painting commissions, sold my work through commissions, solo and joint exhibitions and in small local galleries. It’s a lovely thought that my work is all over the world in people’s homes.

In Zimbabwe I worked only in watercolour, and my subjects were predominately floral and landscape (see Bush Sunrise). Here in the UK, I have taken on private commissions and I have sold work at the Corner Gallery, Carlshalton (see Hydrangea Profusion) and through the studio of Jane Silk, the ceramicist (see Ornamental Orange Tree and Higginson Park).

I am exhibiting at Sixteen Gallery, Cheltenham in March 2022.

I’ve had exciting experiences as a mature student. I lived in Sweden for four years to study (BA European History) and during that time took 3 courses in Western Humanities under Dr. Torbjorn Aaronson, PhD Political Science, Uppsala (2002). As a visiting student for one year, I studied Jewish Art in Late Antiquity at the Hebrew University, Rothberg School, under Professor Lee I. Levine (2003-2004). I now live in Kent.

About The Artist

I was born in Fontainebleau, France and I have lived in Surrey for almost 30 years.

After passing my Baccalaureat specialising in Art and History of Art I went on to do a foundation course in the Ateliers de Sevres, Paris, followed by a course in Fine Art at Olivier de Serres Art School, Paris.

As a portrait artist I have exhibited on several occasions at the National Portrait Gallery, as part of the BP Portrait Award Exhibition. I have also exhibited in the Royal Society of Portrait Painters Exhibition, the Academie Jacques Boitiat, Barbizon, France, Guildford Arts Exhibition at the Mill Studio and the
Lightbox in Woking.

I am currently running a Gallery in Swan Lane, Guildford with 7 other artists ,where you can see some of my work.

I specialise in highly-detailed portrait paintings. My portraits, from children to celebrities, musicians and Vice-Chancellors are recognised for their incredible likeness. My artistic style can also be applied to pet portraits, capturing the personality of your favourite animal.


Nathalie Scott Guildford Portrait Artist and Tutor

Guildford Mural and Portrait Artist Nathalie Scott

All my portraits are created with several thin layers of oil on canvas. I work mainly from photographs that I like to take myself but can work from photographs given to me if they are clear enough. Ideally I will meet my sitters a few times to be able to connect with them and capture their personalities in the portrait. I feel a portrait is timeless. It is about capturing the essence of a person. A portrait is a piece of Art that is uniquely yours and can be transmitted through generations. It can also be a wonderful present for your loved ones.

As a mural artist, I have been getting many commissions all around Surrey in schools, bars, hospitals and houses. See below for further information about murals.

I also offer Portrait Workshops and Private Tuition.

For further examples of my work please visit my website and feel free to get in touch for a friendly chat about commissioning a portrait or a mural.

About The Artist

For most of my life I lived in Surrey. I loved painting from a young age (see oil painting, aged 8 below).

I studied at Croydon College of Art from1960-63 and then worked as a graphic designer until 2007, giving one day a week to teaching in Colleges of Art; Hull, Norwich, Epsom, Croydon and Reigate.

I taught drawing and painting to adults at Ruxley Lane, Epsom and also practiced as a portrait photographer. In 2009, I concentrated on fine art, photography and teaching.

I was a member of the Dorking Art Group and I also still tutor a group in Caterham, where I was born. Now I have moved to Biggin Hill in Kent, just a few yards from Tatsfield.

I paint landscape, portrait, still life; telling a story or expressing an emotion, emphasising light, tone and colour.

I work in a varied style, but mostly "post-impresssionist", or "academic" rendering.

I work both in my studio or 'en plein air'.

Art Tutor

Some are born with a natural talent, (for instance Picasso could draw beautifully at age 7); that applies in all walks of life. However, drawing and painting is often not well taught! My structured methods can bring out the best in any budding artist.


Examples of portraits are included in my portfolio on this Surrey Artists website. If you are interested in having a portrait painted, please contact me with your commission enquiry.

About The Artist

Yana's art reflects her passion for nature; she loves creating the beauty of nature that attracts her attention on to the canvas using acrylic and watercolour. She also enjoys painting portraits, animals, various landscapes, flowers and trees.

Yana has always enjoyed drawing and painting. As a child growing up in Russia (b.1979) she was always drawing, but her parents were academics and didn't see art as a profession, so they sent her to accounting school! Thus, her love of drawing was put to one side for many years.

In 2008 Yana moved with her husband to settle in the UK with her young family. She found much pleasure drawing with the children just for fun. The family then moved to Saudi in 2014 and it was there that Yana began to paint. She was invited to join a drawing and painting course and meet fellow artists who encouraged her to paint and share her talents and work. Yana was fortunate enough to be taught by the internationally recognised artist Naima Karim who has exhibited worldwide, and American artist Tomas Rodriguez.

Some of Yana's landscapes capture the vastness and beauty of the sand dunes of the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. Since returning to the UK in 2018, Yana has been busy painting, including some stunning lavender fields and beautiful poppies, but she hasn't forgotten her Russian heritage and often paints unique Russian Dolls, all with individual characters and charm.

About The Artist

Sadly, Noël Haring passed away in August 2008. As a memory of his talent, his excellent work (both original paintings and Limited Edition Fine Art Prints), continue to be available for sale. Please contact us via email.

Having graduated in Design from The Royal College of Art in 1957, Noël Haring started his own industrial and graphic design business. He saw a turning point in his artistic career when a friend introduced him to working in watercolour.

Noël Haring exhibited at The Royal Watercolour Society Summer Exhibition from 1992 and all major exhibitions at the Mall Galleries (Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour, Royal Society of Portrait Artists, Royal Society of Marine Artists) including the most prestigious one: The Singer and Friedlander /Sunday Times Watercolour Competition.

In 1997, HRH The Prince of Wales selected all the paintings Noël submitted for The Discerning Eye Exhibition.
In 2000 Noël Haring was a prize winner at the Singer and Friedlander/ Sunday Times competition, with his picture “Classic Car in Havana”.

"His meticulously observed watercolour of a dilapidated colonial-style building bathed in brilliant sunlight, with a well-preserved old banger parked on a road outside, is a considerable achievement, not least because it gives not a hint of how complicated it was to get it to look natural”.

Dr Frank Whitford, Art Editor of The Sunday Times

In November 2005, a new Prize Exhibition organised by the Lynn Foundation together with the Painter-Stainers Company gave Noël an opportunity to once again show his talent. His picture “Morning in Brighton” was one of the 12 selected watercolours among the 53 works of mix media accepted out of more than 700 pictures submitted.
