Artist's Aboriginal Background
The family were "travellers" and followed the timber industry for work. They eventually settled in La Perouse beside Botany Bay, just across from Kurnell where Captain Cook first came ashore in 1770.
Grandfather Gordon Ella belonged to the Gadigal Tribe and this tribe is part of the Eora Nation. He and May had 12 children and Natalie's mother Karen was one of those twelve. It's a large and closely knit family.
Artist Natalie Bateman has lived in the pretty coastal town of Nambucca Heads on the mid north coast of NSW since 1985. This is the traditional land of the Gumbaynggirr people. Many of Natalie's works are inspired by the glorious rural, rainforest and coastal seascapes found throughout the Nambucca Valley.
Natalie's totem is "Umbarra" the black duck.
