About Natàlia
I am a freelance illustrator and surface pattern designer from Barcelona, currently based in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester.

I graduated as a fashion and textiles designer back in 2012, but very quickly in my first job as a designer at Oysho I realised that my passion resided in illustrating and creating prints and patterns. After moving to the UK 6 years ago, I started working as a surface pattern designer in a homewares sourcing company, where I got very valuable knowledge and experience.
I have been freelance since the end of 2019, and focusing on the market that brings me the most joy: children's. Since then I’ve created a broad library of patterns, designed stationery products, illustrated a children's book, created my own colouring book and worked on several commissions.
I'm an introverted person; I daydream, observe, imagine and I always try to spread brightness and optimism, which I think shows through my work. My inspiration comes from little things that spark joy in me: books that I love, animals and nature, colour exploration and trends.
If you'd like to collaborate, or have any questions, please contact me. I'd love to hear from you!
