Nathalie Ortega's Profile

About

Hi everyone!

My name is Nathalie, I'm a professional illustrator and mother of a boy.

I've always loved to work with my hands and creating things, crafting. My dad was an amateur painter and always encouraged me to draw & paint; I even inherited his painter box!. I have a background in Arts and, after, I began my working life in a cartoon production studio, in Valencia (Spain). Cartoons have always been the most attractive thing that I could find in TV!,I must say that I'm a Disney addicted (if our family budget allows it, we enjoy going to EuroDisney!). I also adore nature programs in TV as well.
After five years enjoying my work as an inbetweener,layout woman and character designer, a serious crisis in our working sector pushed me to readapt myself to other artistic path;I began my work as an illustrator…

Hi everyone!

My name is Nathalie, I'm a professional illustrator and mother of a boy.

I've always loved to work with my hands and creating things, crafting. My dad was an amateur painter and always encouraged me to draw & paint; I even inherited his painter box!. I have a background in Arts and, after, I began my working life in a cartoon production studio, in Valencia (Spain). Cartoons have always been the most attractive thing that I could find in TV!,I must say that I'm a Disney addicted (if our family budget allows it, we enjoy going to EuroDisney!). I also adore nature programs in TV as well.
After five years enjoying my work as an inbetweener,layout woman and character designer, a serious crisis in our working sector pushed me to readapt myself to other artistic path;I began my work as an illustrator and since then I have always had work in my desk,a lot of work,indeed!.That's why, after eight years of intense labor, a baby, a husband and a home to care of I fell ill and had to stop for a while. I closed the little studio I runed with my brothers in law and moved it to my home. Now I'm working from home, that has begun my studio and I feel more relaxed and able to manage my little family and my passion: creating things, no matter what kind of things: drawings, watercolors, polymer clay dolls, jewelry or quilting!.

Because, recently, I found polimer clay and I adore making my own jewelry, also I sculpt dolls using the same material. Sewing is another passion I have, specially quilting. In my Etsy shop you can find beautiful original watercolors and prints, earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings made of polymer clay and a lot of loving care. I'm also testing the new polymer clay dolls I've made; the only negative point is that it would be hard to say goodbye to my "babies", these dolls are so much time consumers and I've put so much love in them (snif), c'est la vie!

Thanks a lot for stopping by and hope you like what you'll find here.

Nathalie.
