Meet Natasha

Natasha is a multi-media illustrator living and working from her home studio in Bournemouth, UK. With a love of colour and texture she creates vibrant images inspired by her favourite subject, the natural world. 

Natasha has built her illustration career over 10 years, working with clients such as Apple, Samsung, Anthropologie, the BBC, Kip & Co, Bonnier Publishing & Penguin Roundhouse.

Past commissions include murals, homeware, stationery, apparel, toys and even gaming apps! Natasha has also worked on book publications such as the 'What to Look For…series' - a reboot of the well-known Ladybird books, three non-fiction Creature Features books with Big Picture Press and Animals with Quarto Publishing.

Her work begins away from her desk, getting messy with paper-cut shapes and mixed-media mark-making. Once all these elements are scanned, the final artwork is created digitally in Photoshop.

My Story

I've always been fascinated by animals and nature. As a kid, would daydream about fantasy world where I living in amongst animals.

It took me a while to find my artistic style, but a big breakthrough came when I combined my love of drawing with the subject matter I enjoyed the most - animals and nature.

During my final year at uni, I experimented with paper-cut shapes, messy mark-making, and textures, and finally built everything together in Photoshop. I love playing with colour combinations and seeing how textures bring things to life.⁠
