Artist Bio:
Born in Venezuela, Natalie Giugni has traveled extensively, and has drawn inspiration for her work from her experiences in Italy, South America, and Japan. In 2020, Natalie was elected President of the New York Society of Women Artists, a not-for-profit organization which was founded in 1925. Giugni is a graduate of Manhattan's School of Visual Arts where she attended on a full scholarship and has earned a master's degree in international business administration from Saint Peter's University, NJ, where she returned to study as a mid-career artist. This in-depth experience in fine art, combined with her business administration background, has enhanced her success as a fine artist, and in not-for-profit programming and management.

Natalie finds challenge in both design work and fine art. Her participation in a year-long gilding project in the Russian Consulate, NYC, restoring the original moldings in 23K gold, influenced her to explore the use of metals in her painting and sculpture. One of Natalie's strengths is great diversity in her work. Contrasted to the delicate precision required when working with gold leaf, is the boldness and humor exhibited in a project she completed for the Children's Aid benefit at Lincoln Center, for which she was contracted to produce a twelve-foot replica of Judy Garland's ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz.
