About Natalie

“I’m an entrepreneur, working all aspects of my business. I love what I do! I’m grateful for the freedom to create art and stories that are in my heart. I want to make a difference; inspiring all of us to have faith during troubled times, to see joy and beauty in the colors of life, and even during the deepest sorrow, be at peace. God bless you and your family.”


Natalie Buske Thomas is an author of 27 books and an artist with oil paintings in gallery showings. Her public speaking events range from short speaking engagements to day-long events that feature art demos, workshops, humor, singing, video presentations, and surprise interactive exhibits. She started her “Natalie’s Oil Painting Gifts” business in August 2018, bringing her art into American homes.

Natalie currently lives in coastal Georgia. She was born in upstate New York, raised in Indiana, lived in Germany for three years and near the Twin Cities (Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Minnesota) for twenty. In December 2015 Natalie’s dream of painting and writing in Ireland came true! Read her Irish Adventures blog here. Natalie returned to the United States in May 2016. After a year back in the Midwest, her dream of living near the ocean came true again with a move to Georgia.

Natalie enjoys people who are still capable of having an imagination, of having a sense of wonder, of feeling hopeful and full of energy, of feeling as if anything is possible, of feeling afraid of scary things and unafraid of the rest… of having courage, of being selfless, of being spontaneous, of recognizing humor, and of living life to the absolute fullest.
