** Latest news ** In July 2017 Natalie gave an enormously successful presentation to an audience of artists and creatives in Chongqing, China.
Natalie is an artist, illustrator and author. She completed her MA in Sequential Design/Illustration at the University of Brighton in 2010. Her MA project was a 230-page visual walkthrough of William Gibson’s cyberpunk novel Neuromancer, which Natalie realised in the style of a retro videogame. She also presented a paper at the EVA (Electronic Visualisation & the Arts) about videogame narratology.
In recent years, Natalie has worked with health and travel writer Gill Carrick on veterinary illustrations for Gill’s animal health books and a front cover design for the short story The Franglais Cat. From 2014-2016 Natalie held very successful exhibitions of her illustrations in her home town, Sheringham.
In 2016, Natalie collaborated with NABO Make-up on a set of beauty illustrations. Natalie has worked extensively with the YHA; see Public Projects for more. In Spring 2017 Natalie released a range of limited edition greetings cards and mounted prints, based on her London Victorian Fantasia series. Natalie has recently picked up a paint brush again and returned to working on canvas. The free and energetic acrylic paintings showcase Natalie’s talent for traditional art. In June 2017, Natalie received the exciting news that she is a finalist in the L Ron Hubbard Illustrators of the Future Contest and the Hiii Illustration 2016 International Competition. In the same month, Natalie’s short illustrated story, The Carnival Queen, was published on Amazon and is available to purchase as a paperback or as an ebook.
