Amazing product! This seller was amazing to work with. She kept me updated on progress throughout her artistic process, and even made modifications to the painting at my request. She was incredibly pleasant and not to mention extremely talented. The painting made a beautiful gift for my sister - she raved about it! I will be ordering again for Christmas!

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 :)

    I painted portraits all my live. Like a professional until 2007. I love to discuss how to give to the painting this special feeling that my client wants to transmit. It‘s very rewarding to feel that I‘ve helped to get a unique piece with such emotive
