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.
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.
Nathalie is developing an impressive portfolio of school murals in the South East of England.

She has also painted a beautiful tropical scene for an indoor swimming pool at a private house in East Grinstead, West Sussex..
Murals are charged by time at a basic rate of £200 a day, plus materials and expenses. Cost is directly related to how large and complex a mural your school or organisation would like.
Nathalie can be hired to provide either one-to-one or class based tutoring to children and adults alike.
She has run many workshops as a guest teacher for Berkshire based art school Artspiration.
Nathalie recently ran a portrait workshop in Heathside School in Weybridge for the A-Level students. The portraits were the results of the workshop and submitted for their final exam as coursework.
