Local artist Nathalie Trovato who was born in Southern France works in printmaking (etchings and lino-cuts), she has recently created a number of playful and poetic images where  the use of paper and scissors came as an evidence to translate her enchanted minimalist approach to drawing. These books were recently published by Home Grown Books.

After many years traveling around the world, she finally chose to settle down in Brooklyn with her family. Although she speaks 5 languages, she is essentially a visual translator eager to invent new connections between words and images.

She has collaborated with a number of publishers such as Esperluète, Passage Piétons, Donner à voir and has illustrated texts by classic authors Guillaume Apollinaire and Jean Anouilh, as well as contemporary writers Sophie Braganti, Patrick Joquel and Maud Franklin. Her work was showed at Cork Printmakers - Ireland, Muriel Guépin Gallery - Brooklyn, NY, The Bronx Blue Bedroom project - NY, and Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nice, France, etc.

 

During the New York launch of the book "Le Taxi" by Maud Franklin in 2010, her drawings were exhibited at Book Court, Greenlight and Rizzolis' bookstore in New York City.
