Hello, I am Natalia Turina, artist and author from New Zealand. On this website you can find my paintings & drawings, also, children's picture books. All artworks & books are for sale, please make an inquiry. I am used to be known as Natalia Vidyakina, but I made a decision to go back to my roots, to my maiden name Natalia Turina. My art comes from admiration of Nature. I mostly paint emotions into subjects, created my own mixed an impressionist with semi abstract style. I love vibrant colours and complex, textured, layered approach, that gives special effects to artworks. People say my art reflects joy, happiness, giving a visual healing. I am very happy with such feedback, as it gives me a satisfaction, knowing my works deliver some positive vibes to the viewers and appreciators, also bringing vibrant happy colours to their homes.
