Natalya’s early passion for painting and drawing was driven by her father, the highly regarded and practiced artist and teacher Semyon Bilmes. Natalya’s skills have been rigorously developed through dedication and consistent exercising of traditional techniques.
Living abroad in Turkey as a child has influenced her artistic aesthetic and inspired her to bring textures, colors and history from that part of the world into her work.
With nature as her ultimate teacher, and watercolor as a preferred medium, Natalya’s pairing of earth-rooted tones with rich jewel accents creates her signature look. Natalya currently resides in Los Angeles where she continues to develop her art and teaching career.
