Hi, my name is Natalia and I’m an illustrator and designer based in Frankfurt, Germany and Basel, Switzerland who specializes in surface design, travel and food illustration. I have more than 12 years of experience in design and in the last few years I focused on illustration and pattern design. Since I was able to hold a pencil I’m continuous drawing and creating and I’m passionate about sketching, illustrating and crafting.
I have an inquisitive mind, love to explore new themes and believe in life-long learning. The artwork I create is playful and colorful with a pinch of humor. The nature and the trips to foreign countries with their exotic flavors are huge source of inspiration for me.
When I’m not illustrating you can find me exploring new areas either near home or somewhere in the world or cooking new delicious recipes and afterwards illustrate them. If you are looking for a detail obsessed illustrator who can create appealing and beautiful artwork for your products or publications, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Pasta e Fagioli is a traditional italian soup and consists of inexpensive ingredients. There are a lot of variations of this dish, due to the availability of the ingredients in the different regions of Italy.
