Natalie Harriton Becker has been long inspired by painting on location, at the seashore, in the woods, in gardens, or amongst ancient buildings, both here and abroad. She uses vivid colors to express impressionist-like views of water, sky, earth and foliage.
Ms. Becker studied at the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts and the Art Students League in New York. She taught painting and drawing at Union County College, Cranford, NJ. Rockport Publications selected her work for their 1996 “Best of Oil Painting” and 1997 “Floral Impressions, A Collection of Drawing and Painting Ideas for Artists”. Her numerous honors include four Allied Artists of America awards in the categories of Creative Painting and Landscape in their national exhibitions, one First Place and Medal of Honor Award in the Audubon Artists Annual exhibition, the Grumbacher Award by the American Association of Women Artists, several awards of the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club National Exhibitions and numerous awards including two Solo Award Exhibitions at the Pen and Brush Club, New York, NY, most recently in 2000.
She has served on a number of juries of selection and juries of awards for Allied Artists of America and Audubon Artists of America, among others.
