Natalia was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, in 1978.
In 1993-1998, she studied at the Kharkiv Academy of Arts, Department of Art and Pedagogy. After graduation, she entered the Kharkiv Academy of Design and Arts, Department of Painting, where she studied at the portrait studio of Professor Chaus V.N. and Professor Ganotsky V.L.
Since 2000, Natalia has been actively participating in regional and national exhibitions. Many of her works are in private collections in the United States, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, the Emirates, Ukraine and Russia. Her works attract with professional skill, warmth and sincerity. The artist successfully works in such genres as portrait, landscape, and still life. She prefers landscape, in which she combines exquisite colors with soft design of forms. The creator creates lyrical landscapes full of harmony and diversity, finding beauty in the surrounding, sometimes empathizing with the romantically excited, sometimes poetically sad moods of nature.
The series of paintings entitled "My World" presents about forty works in the genres of landscape, still life, and portrait. As a master of landscape, Tretyakova strives for a multifaceted reflection of nature. Inspired by various states of nature - romantically sublime or poetically sad - the artist creates lyrical, harmonious impressions in which exquisite color schemes are successfully combined with soft form design.
Due to painting from nature, her paintings are filled with a bright palette, pure hues, and air transparency. The artist literally thinks with color, models forms with it, conveys light and optical effects, and denotes three-dimensional relations. The sea often appears in her landscapes as a tuning fork of mental balance.
Among Natalia's works there are many still lifes - flowers in vases, vegetables, fruits. They shine with fresh juicy colors, shimmer with a delicate melody of shades, fascinate with the elegance of the image, delicacy of plastic forms.
In the image of flowers - a favorite motif of still lifes - the artist embodies her personal aesthetic and philosophical concept of beauty.
