About

Born in Thailand, Natasha Junmanee is a fine art painter based in Sydney, Australia. "My work explores the beauty of still life from objects and things around my life. I am inspired by the classical still life paintings especially from the Dutch and Flemish school. My work often incorporates symbolic objects depicting the beauty of stillness, memory and transience. Much of my work uses balance composition with a sense of tranquility. I am also inspired by the beauty of nature and flowers are my favourite subject to paint. My painting style is realism and I paint predominantly in oil, but also work in acrylics, pastel and watercolour."
