Some time ago, on a late summer evening, in America, a girl was born with a vast imagination and she was given the name Natali, after the actress, Natalie Wood. But to give her name a slight uniqueness other than the meaning of “Christmas child,” the “e” in Natalie, was dropped.
As a little girl she loved to draw, mainly of the horse farm down the road, and exotic cars from magazines. She also had a hyperactive imagination, so at recess she would bring characters to life, acting out each personality and everyone that was around was consumed into her universe. Throughout her education, her art was recognized quickly as a talent.
A little after dropping out of college she was discovered and began to draw for comic companies as a cover artist. During this time, she was influenced from drawing others characters, which then, pushed her to write. After a couple years she solely began
to take on commissions, with one or two published covers as she prepares to publish her first novel. Inspired from her stories with gods, immortals, beasts, demons, dark creatures on heavens and planets, she’s beginning to create paintings to share with all.
Soon after that Natali was picked up by a retailer and began her wonderful relationship with them and DC comics. Natali’s work continues to be received by collectors of comics and fantasy all over the world. Her art has been published in books and magazines, on comics, and is available on licensed products. Some of Natali’s paintings are created with oil paint, Prismacolor pencils, acrylic paint, airbrush, watercolor, and other mixed mediums. She is always discovering new mediums to experiment with. “If it doesn’t get all over then I'm not losing myself enough to have fun.”
She still resides in the US, being self-employed painting her imagination of fantasy and commissions. She is also, a full time mommy that's starved for attention from her little one and she wounldn't want it any other way. When she has spare time she's visiting her family/friends, listening to audio books for inspiration, exercising her spirituality, and creating.
“I love that feeling I get when I write or draw, it’s like I’m back at recess or with my sister playing in our room till the sun comes up. On the weekend of course, haha. But I know if I have these feelings, I have hope that others may be bound to feel similarly, and I want people to float back to those memories from their childhood. As an artist, I paint because of a passionate force to create strangth, beauty, and wonder. So thank you, for following or looking at my artwork, putting them on your personal walls, allowing its magic to become real, for making the image I have captured come to life in your eyes and mind. I hope that my artwork can be an inspiration to you.”
"Thank you for being a lover of fantasy, beauty, and magic.”
