Welcome to my website! I am Natalia Vidyakina, the artist and author. I express my art in different forms. There are paintings in various media, drawings, art books and children's picture books. I am a Russian-born New Zealander, residing in the Wairarapa, Wellington region, with my partner on a lifestyle block (small farm). Surrounding us nature and farm pets are a great inspiration for my art and books. I love travelling, always holding note-sketching book and camera. To me, art and writing are other ways to express yourself, share your experience with others, as the way to communicate. The process of creating new work is always thrilling, I enjoy it very much. I have held four Solo Exhibitions in 2016,2017, 2018,2018 and also being in several group Exhibitions in the great Wellington city and now in the beautiful Wairarapa region. Some of my paintings sold to New Zealand, Russia, Australia, United States of America. Artbooks and children's picture books are my passion and needless to say, that publishing of own books is a great satisfaction. I love all this process from writing and illustrating to design lay-outing and finally publishing own book.
There are : The artbook about beautiful cats is "Cats, only Cats!",
The children's picture book about NZ native wild life creatures is "What Happened before Sunset?" And the books are coming in 2019,2020: "Janis-Pyjamas", "The Country Road", serie of books "Farm life"
