Hola I'm Natalia (she/they)

I'm the color wizard behind our cute & mighty shop ♡♡

I'm a Colombian illustrator & designer based in Portland, OR with over 8 years of experience.

My work draws inspiration from the warmth of my home country, my childhood in the 90s & my whimsical relationship with nature.

I love spending time in my art studio with my cat Scoots designing illustrated products, books, murals and more!

When I'm not working, I'm usually watching lots of TV, or outdoors camping, stargazing, biking and swimming.
