Natalie E. Tackett
A decorative finisher and restoration artist, Natalie was introduced to gilding through a conservator she assisted when she was still attending Florida State University. Though she didn’t know at the time, gilding, along with the decorative finishes and toning she was learning to apply to restored frames and furnishings, would become her future career. Natalie originally joined the SOG and attended her first conference to become more proficient with specific aspects of gilding and have a better understanding of the beautiful craftsmanship of this trade. Natalie was invited to become a member of the board in 2019 and then accepted the Education Chair position in 2021. Natalie’s work is focused on creating highly specialized designs and restoration for her clients’ spaces that focuses on life and legacy. She also provides these services to antique dealers, builders, interior designers, churches, and commercial institutions. Natalie has been doing this work for more than 30 years and proudly owns a decorative finishing and restoration business in Bristol, TN called BRUSHED. She also travels throughout North America for special projects and commissions.
