I have dabbled in many things, but Illustration is the only one that stuck! After gaining experience as an Illustrator in a mobile games studio, I am now hoping to debut in the publishing industry to make a more meaningful connection with young readers. I specialise in colourful, semi-realist and high detail illustration that brings characters and scenes to life. My work is inspired by the fantastical and mysterious and the wonders of human nature.

Working with many a private client on character commissions, I pride myself in excellent communication skills, a fast turn around time and quick adaptation to feedback. I explore the spirit behind the characters and bring stories to life in colour.

Work experience

Freelance Illustrator

July, 2019 – Present (about 1 year)

After leaving my work as a mobile games Illustrator I became a Freelancer trying to break into the publishing Industry. Whilst I am still a debut Illustrator in this field, I have worked on a large variety of character commissions and personal projects in this time, including an illustration for the SVS November Podcast. I have enjoyed positive feedback from my returning clients on fast turn around times and good communication, and hope to build many new relationships in the near future!

2D Artist and Illustrator

Burke & Best
October, 2017 – July, 2019 (over 1 year)

As a 2D Artist at this small but vibrant studio in the heart of Canterbury I had the pleasure of working in a tight knit team on titles such as 'Captain Planet - Gaia Guardians' and the Amateur Surgeon Series. I created background, character and prop illustrations and aided in UI and graphic design tasks. The work required strict adherence to deadlines, excellent communication and an iterative process with constantly changing parameters and requirements. Not to mention a good sense of humour that could translate into the characters!

Nathalie has been incredible to work with! Fast, professional, easy to work with and the quality of the illustrations she has done for me are outstanding. I’d like to highlight her ability to capture exactly what you are looking for in an image as well. I couldn’t be happier with the work and would recommend her to anyone looking for high quality images.
