About

Why do I paint?

The first painting I did was a portrait. I was about 6-7 years old. After school my sister and me we took art classes. I painted our yellow canary Agapitu with oil. She painted our grandfather in his atelier. Both paintings were praised and hunged in our grandparents' home :)

In the elementary school my favorite subject was drawing. With each project I felt the hope that it will be a really good drawing, better than the last one. It mays sound weird but I felt that. At very early age I was pleased to beat me.

When I was 8 years carnival arrives. We had to disguise as a profession. I dressed up as a painter.

I grew up doodling pictures in my friend’s diaries, painting their names and making caricatures of themselves. Also drew in school books, desks, foggy windows, crystals dirty cars. Also in my school homework...

Years passed and I had to decide what to study. Took the way of art. I thought it would be fun and would have to study less. It looked easy but it was not. It was the firsts times that I had art projects in my hands. For me each exercise was extremely important. I was thinking about it at way to home, on the train, in the shower, at dinner time, at night... And that thinking is addictive. It sound exaggerate but true.

When I finished high school point to an art school in Barcelona: Pau Gargallo. I studied for 5 years illustration and painting. Had a great time with all the people in my class, I felt that we were all cells of the same molecule. We were all so different and so similar at the same time. Dreamers who lived more in the world of ideas and humor than in the real grey world. I learned so much there, although I did not realize at the time. I feel an immense love for my teachers Paulina Muxart, Maria Núñez and Carme Garolera.

I had an artistic period in 2007 in which only (and I mean ONLY) painted faces of white cats on large canvases with acrylic. I did exhibitions in Barcelona (where I am from) and then I managed my first assignments as a professional painter. I continued painting more cats, dogs and also two birds.

Then I moved to a small house with a large terrace and I gave all cats paintings that I can't hung to my friends in exchange for flowers and plants.

I fell in love with watercolor technique in 2012. I began painting my marbles collection. I painted other stuff and decided to open my own Etsy store to sell my art prints: SesCaniques.

One day premiering some new watercolors I did a portrait of my nieces. It was very nice and started painting more portraits of family and friends… I put an add in my store offering my services as a portrait painter. It works.

I portray children, siblings living apart, women cancer survivors, parents, friends of friends, couples who are promised, grandchildren that have the grandparents away... Flower lovers, sea lovers, cats lovers, nephews... Dogs lovers, people who are no longer with us…

I have met many people with this passion and I still do. People telling me bits of their lives, talk and debate to give the special feeling that they want to convey with the artwork. I do everything in my power to exceed their expectations and is very rewarding for my appreciation and happiness.

This fills my life and wanted to share with you.

Big hug

Natilles. The painter :)

Frequently asked questions
Gift wrapping and packaging

All the custom paintings and art prints come rolled and protected in a rigid cardboard tube. This tube goes inside a waterproof envelope.
It always arrives without any damage.

JUST FOR ORIGINAL PORTRAIT PAINTINGS*
I can add a custom gift notes. Just ask me for doing that and I will.
If you want a GIFT WRAP: I will decorate the package beautifully with stickers, washi tape, cute stamps, and I will hand-lettering the address there. People usually like a lot :)

* I can not do this with art prints because I use a provider who prints and send the posters to me so I can not do this customizable gifts options.

International shipping. Is it secure?

Since 2012 I do international shipments and does not give any problem.

Attached a map to show the destination of my past portraits:
http://natilles.com/Paintings-map
Every time I send a portrait, I mark that destination on that map :)

Don't worry about international shipping. I do it 3-4 times a week and works perfectly. Never a package has been lost.

Custom portraits shipping time: REALLY FAST :)

The service I use is DHL Express, and usually, needs:

- 1-2 business days to deliver a package to Spain
- 1-3 business days to deliver a package to Europe
- 2-4 business days to USA and Canada
- 3-6 business days to deliver to another country

This service has a tracking number and insurance and works very very well. I use it every week.
The delivery is always in person (Requires a signature) and for this reason, I can not send to a PO BOX. If you need, I can send it to your nearest DHL office, just ask me for this service.

Care instructions

Folding or wetting it would irreparably damage it.
Exposing it to direct sunbeams would make it lighten slowly over the time, as well as any kind of original painting should be protected, and be hung in an area where the sun's rays do not touch the surface directly.
I also apply a matte and transparent archival varnish for watercolors. The varnish has the ability to seal and hold the pigment and binder in place on the paper

For any question or any problem

Here I am, I'm always online and I answer very quickly.
I am a very understanding person and I always do all in my hands for help
