Established Gallery is proud to present About Last Night, a solo show by natchie. natchie is an avid dreamer. Ever since her teenage years she has been keeping a dream journal. Upon awakening or sometimes even in the middle of the night she will write them down and create a rough sketch. Her dreams arrive in full color, with sound, conversation, information and feelings of temperature. “About Last Night” is a collection of some of natchie’s favorite night time adventures that have never really left her. This body of work is a departure from her usual medium (pencil)
Challenged by a friend during the pandemic to paint, natchie picked up a brush and some oil paints and thus here is “About Last Night"

Early 1998 Nadia decided to pack her suitcase and move from her native Sydney, Australia to New York City to pursue her dream of being a jazz singer in the big apple. six pop albums, appearances on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, SNL and Good Morning America, and performances with music industry greats including Sting, James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Billy Joel later.. she has crammed a lot into her career as a singer.
In 2012, Nadia began to see her songs as images, and felt an overwhelming desire to draw her music. Out of this desire was born “natchie“ (from the nickname her dad gave to her when she was 13).At natchie , Nadia draws each of her songs; each piece of art comes with lyrics and a free download code to own the song. In addition to selling at various markets, Nadia has partnered with numerous brands including launching “natchie“ in Japan with “Loft “ department stores, creating a limited edition water bottle with Dopper Bottle in The Netherlands, Limited edition baby blankets with Aden and Anais.
