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 artistic passions include animal portraits, creative cakes, and creating art with kids to enhance their art education and spark creativity during these challenging times.
