Natalie has been drawing and painting professionally for over twenty years. She attended both the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and Academy of Art University in San Francisco. She received a BFA in Illustration with a concentration in Digital Design and Art History. Natalie worked at a mural arts company in San Francisco while in school. After graduating, she worked as a Graphic Designer and Web Designer which led to her 17-year career as a Creative and Marketing Communications Director for mid-size corporations. While working in the corporate world, she continued to paint private commissions. Natalie has won several awards and has pieces on display around the world. She made a brave hop from being a corporate working mom to a stay-at-home working mom, so that she could spend more time with her family and have more time to create her art. She taught art to children ages 8-14 out of her studio due to the decline of art in public schools; through this experience, Natalie found she has a passion for teaching art.
Natalie, her husband and four children love to travel the world, making long lasting memories. They also love to spoil their two English Bulldogs, Mable and Moby.
