Nat Ord – Communications & Engagement Officercomms@murrayarts.org.au

Nat Ord is an award-winning photographic artist.  She has a passion for environment, place, and personal stories meld together in her environmental portraiture. As a photographic storyteller, Nat’s aesthetic is impressionable and always predetermined by her subject and their story. This dictates where, when and how she gets her capture to best portray the narrative at hand.

Nat is also passionate about woodcarving, sculpting and blacksmithing, resource reuse and environment. On her days off she can be found absorbing inspiration from her beloved Chiltern- Mt Pilot National Park or working on her wood and metal projects in the shed of the family farm.

Nat joined the Murray Arts Team in August 2019, and her experience in photography and art has given her a huge respect for the importance and impact regional arts play in building community, introducing new ideas and as a way to tell our stories.
