Hi, I'm Natalie and I'm an illustrator/author!
I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband and four-year-old girl. We had a goldfish named Gil, but he passed over to the other side.
I spent ten years painting portraits and landscapes as a traditional oil painter, was a Mentor member of the prestigious California Art Club, and was featured in Southwest Art magazine as a young artist to collect. After my daughter was born I started working on illustrations for children. As a lifetime lover of children's books, and a grown-up who never quite grew up, I feel right at home. My mission is to bring beauty and silliness into as many lives as possible!
When I'm not making art, I love hiking, reading, DIY projects and exploring new places near and far.
You can follow me on Instagram for the latest work and behind the scenes!
And P.S., if you're the curious type you can see my fine art work here.
