Natalie Schorr is a 2017 transplant to Fayetteville GA. She holds a BFA in Costume Design from the University of North Carolina Greensboro, and an MFA in Scene Design from Carnegie Mellon University.
Natalie spent 12 years working as an art director and set designer in motion pictures and television before leaving the business to raise her children. She mostly drew, along with some work in watercolors. In 1999, she added printmaking to her skills, experimenting extensively with early photopolymers and other nontoxic methods.
Over the past decade, she has incorporated a lot of recycled materials into her work, although she occasionally still draws on a clean piece of paper. The main themes of her work are portraiture, industrial landscapes, and iconography. She creates both 2D and 3D pieces and feels that solving design problems through multiple methods is the equivalent of creativity calisthenics.
Natalie’s favorite question about her work is “What were you thinking?”, something her mother has been asking her for almost 60 years now.
