Natalie Martin

Natalie is an illustrator and graphic designer from Melbourne. Whilst Natalie has worked for some of the big names in retail (Rip Curl, Patagonia, Lalaland to name a few), it is her dreamy contemporary botanical and animal watercolour illustrations which have been selling through a fleet of retails stores and online that caught the attention of Artable.

Natalie takes the watercolour medium to a new level, with bright, punchy colours and clean crisp backgrounds. Natalie has been teaching her skills through workshops for some time and is flying up to the Gold Coast to share her skills with you.

Drawing inspiration from anything and everywhere, Natalie’s greatest influences are storytellers; Enid Blyton, Dr. Seuss, Tim Burton, Walt Disney, just to name a few. Other things that tickle her fancy are people watching, liquorice, travelling and daydreaming.

She works between the Surf Coast and Melbourne, enjoying the best of both worlds.
