Natalie Shudt
About the Artist

Natalie Shudt creates three dimensional sculptures inspired by botanical and architectural forms.  Her work blends a love of texture, color, and form.  She uses silks, wools and other fine fabrics, stitching and quilting them heavily enough to build sculptures and vessels with flowing lines and vibrant color.

Natalie spent her early career as a business strategy consultant and worked across the U.S., Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean.  She learned to sew as a child and her passion for fiber was rekindled as she traveled through Southeast Asia, inspired by the silks in Thailand and embroidery of Vietnam.

She frequently exhibits her work in The Art League Gallery at The Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, VA and is a current member of their bin gallery.  She also exhibits in galleries in the greater Washington, DC area and in juried shows.  Natalie was an exhibiting member of the Loft Gallery in Occoquan, Virginia from 2010- April, 2013. 

Natalie holds a BA from Wellesley College and a MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management.  She is a member of The Art League, Washington Project for the Arts, Studio Art Quilt Associates, and the MIT Entrepreneurship Society.
