We had the good fortune of connecting with Natalie Pigliacampo and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Natalie, we’d love to hear what makes you happy.
Pursuing a meaningful life makes me happy. A meaningful life involves striving and adventure. Art, for me, is meaningful work, and I find creating beauty and putting it out into the world has been the most fun adventure.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am a fine art photographer, and I paint with light. A love of light and color theory directs my work through still life art. My subject of choice is flowers. I create and photograph floral still lifes to slow time and explore my inner universe. The world is distracting, and flowers have a way of pulling you in, insisting on your grateful wonder to compose a compelling vignette. I am most proud of my first art show at Abbots Passage Winery in Sonoma, CA. All five art pieces I created for their space are now a part of their permanent collection.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them to the Boulder Farmer’s Market, Chautauqua for hiking and dining, the Denver Art Museum, and for a wild experience, Meow Wolf at Convergence Station. We would spend part of the week at my cabin in the mountains.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I dedicate my shoutout to my husband, Anthony Pigliacampo.
