Hi! It’s nice to meet you, I’m Natelle, an illustrator (and self-proclaimed plant lady and cat cuddler) living and working in London, UK.

My work is heavily influenced by childhood memories, heritage, and animals. LOTS of animals! I love exploring themes of conservation, cultural diversity, and the commingling of real life experiences and fantastical adventures.

If you haven’t yet, please do have a peek at my portfolio.

Got a project in mind? I’d love to hear more about it! Feel free to drop me an email at

For enquiries related to children’s picture books, fiction, non-fiction, and YA, please get in touch with my agent Alice Williams at Alice Williams Literary Agency
