Artist Residency

Artist Natalie Taylor

Artist Residency

We’re delighted to see Edinburgh based artist Natalie Taylor to be rejoining North Edinburgh Arts on a part time artist residency. She will be working between now and the end of 2021 in and around the garden with young people, families and adults on creative nature projects.

Natalie has worked with us before, as part of the original NEA garden team, working with local residents on many of the creative garden projects. You may also have seen her designs in the Muirhouse Avenue Amphitheatre, or been part of Centipede’s community project Germinator. More recent projects include the design for the new Pennywell Nature Garden, currently under construction on Pennywell Road.

Her initial project this year will explore the wonderful world of  butterflies. There’s the Save our Butterflies Postcard collage project in which everyone can help keep our beautiful winged cousins happy. And watch out for the Pop-IN and Spring-UP Eggstravaganza event in partnership with the Youth Garden Club during the Easter holidays on Monday 6 April.

If you have any questions about this project or would like to know more, please email

Natalie’s residency is supported by the National Lottery Community Fund.
