Hi! My name is Natalie and I’m a handlettering artist based in Los Angeles, CA. I create hand-lettering for brands all over the world. Some brands I’ve worked with include: The Coffee Bean, Pilot Pen, Disney, and Rihanna... just to name a few! I can honestly say I LOVE lettering, it’s my passion and I love creating it for others! You can also find me trying to book a flight to another corner of the world or just gettin’ down on some Hot Cheetos.

What do you include in your daily routine to practice self care? My daily routine usually consists of waking up at 6 am, exercising maybe 3 times a week, making a smoothie and heading to the office by 9am. My office is across the street from my apartment so it’s a nice commute!

What motivates you? I love a challenge and that definitely motivates me everyday. I like to prove to myself that anything is possible so I set goals for myself and then try to achieve those goals. Sometimes I fail but it’s nice to succeed every now and then!

What or who inspires you? My partner inspires me everyday. He is an entrepreneur and works so hard everyday to accomplish his dreams. He’s a game designer so seeing how difficult it is to make video games and seeing him keep pushing is super inspiring.

What is your favourite positive affirmation? Today is going to be a great day!

Do you ever suffer with self doubt and if so, how do you overcome it? Oh all the time! I think it’s a natural part of being human. But If I’m feeling any sort of self doubt I’ll just recognize it and feel it and give myself a free lazy day. Then I’ll try again the next day.

What impact do you hope your work has on people? I really hope my work inspires other creators to create! Everyone is a beginner when they first get started but if you put your mind to it you can achieve it.
