Drawing with line, Natalie's work centres around encapsulating narrative concepts; using her own photographs and line drawings as basis for generating shapes, Natalie works in a spontaneous manner which is apparent from the end result. Using a PUK welder, a tool to weld two pieces of wire together, she manipulates wire as a line, effectively drawing with the PUK welder; drawing 3D linear shapes which hold a personal memory of her own.

Natalie's jewellery features as a series of wearable sketches, creating a collection of moving shadows on the body, The play of light and shadow symbolising the transit of time, a progression representing both the past and future, The personal journey narrated through the pieces concerns a transformation from one phase of life to another; a move which is manifest geographically, The commencement of the journey is now forgotten and the destination yet to be realised; the shadows, colour and light represent moments of the journey. These fragments are juxtaposed and presented as a continuous line/series of shapes.

The past is coloured black, a colour of mourning for the past, The use of light blue and white is in direct contrast; colours which are more positive and open in their symbolism, indicating the future and her ambitions.
