Natalie is always exploring new ways to write stories and make pictures. Working in sketchbooks or, in her case, on loose sheets of paper is her favourite stage in the creative process – a time when anything is possible.

Natalie loves drawing and experimenting with a broad range of materials – including pencils, watercolour pencils & crayons, brush pens, gouache, acrylic, collage, printmaking techniques and digital tools.

Taking inspiration from natural world – she finds animals fascinating and fun to draw. There are so many species to take inspiration from, and once developed into a book character, they can be placed into everyday human scenarios.

New characters on the scene include Fox, Bird, Cat, Dog and Elephant.
