Hi, I’m Natalie.
I believe that art is for everyone.
Whether you create it, appreciate it, or learn from it, art is a universal language that connects us all.

For freelance illustration and art commission inquiries, email me at natalieintven.creative@gmail.com.

As an illustrator and designer, I have over a decade of experience creating high-quality visual content for both print and digital platforms. With a background in Human Kinetics and a Masters of Science in Biomedical Communications, I specialize in detailed Anatomy & Physiology illustrations for educational publishing. I love continuing to learn about the human body and the world that we live in. I also illustrate biology, chemistry, and environmental science content for both scientific research and education. From initial concept to research to sketch to final rendering techniques, I create accurate and beautiful visual tools for teaching and learning. Beyond the book, I have experience with interactive media design, scientific scriptwriting, storyboarding, and 2D animation.

Although much of my work centres around medical illustration, I also work and play in design, lettering, photography, and creating art in both digital and traditional media to celebrate a love for animals and nature. My current artistic passions include animal portraits, creative cakes, and creating art with kids over video chat to enhance their art education and spark creativity during these challenging times.
