Get to know me better

Hello, I'm Natalie an inspired artist and Pinterest addict. Originally from a small town in Nebraska, currently in the beautiful state Colorado. My interest for the arts took me to Chadron State College, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with an emphasis in Graphic Design.

I enjoy spending time with my wife, family, friends, and my three crazy dogs. I love everything about movies, it doesn't matter the genre, I'll watch it.  If I had to list some of my top favorites, they would be Beetlejuice, A league of their Own, and The Hunger Games Series. I really have a passion for creating furniture, whether it is refurbishing it or building it from scratch.

 

Take a look at my portfolio and feel free to get
in touch with me if you would like to work on a project with me.
