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 commissions, 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. From concept to research to sketch to final rendering techniques, I create visual tools for teaching and learning. Beyond the book, I have developed skills in interactive media design, scientific scriptwriting, storyboarding, and 2D animation.

Although much of my work centres around medical illustration, I also enjoy design, lettering, and creating art in both digital and traditional media to celebrate my love for animals and nature. My current artistic passions include pet portraits, creative cakes, creating art with kids over video chat to enhance their art education and spark creativity during this challenging year. I am also exploring a growing interest in visual storytelling through photography.
