Hi! I'm Natelle! Lover of animals, avid succulent and cushion collector, and crazy crafter. I am an illustrator currently based in Gainesville, Florida, where in between commissioned work, I run my wee online shop, Natelle Draws Stuff. The business is run entirely by me; I design all products, answer customer emails, pack, and ship orders! Starting my own business has been an amazing adventure, and a really fun way of sharing my art with everyone! I hope that my illustrations will bring smiles to people's faces for many years to come. When I'm not designing or running NDS, I enjoy crafting, going on hikes, watching movies with my family, and cuddling cats.

I'm also really lucky to have James, who is my ever supportive partner, and two hilariously weird animals in my life; our cat overlord Patch, which we brought over to Florida from New Zealand, and dopey dog Frida, which we adopted from a shelter here in Gainesville. We're just a family of misfits just trying to make it out alive, and hopefully will have lots of stories to tell and would have eaten many, many different types of custard pastries along the way.

Thanks for visiting us, we hope to see you again soon :)
