About Natàlia
I am a freelance illustrator and surface pattern designer from Barcelona, based in Liverpool.
I graduated as a fashion and textiles designer in 2012, but very quickly realised that my passion resided in illustrating. I moved to the UK in 2013, and worked as a surface pattern designer for 5 years.
My freelance journey started in 2018, specialising in children’s illustration. Since then, among other commissions, I have illustrated several books, designed printed fabrics, licensed prints for stationery and have seen my online shop grow.
I'm an introverted person; I observe, imagine and listen. I seek to create uplifting images that are both comforting and playful. Illustration to me, is storytelling, and I love exploring how this can be done not just through picture books but also textiles, greeting cards, toys or even packaging.
My clients include: Riley Blake Designs, Estrella Polar, Apli Kids, Up With Paper, Our World My Roots, North Parade Publishing, Benchmark Education, Èccolo, Papyrus and World Market.
Proudly represented by Advocate Art.
