I'm Natalie! I'm an artist running on reference, strawberries, kitty cuddles and silly words.
I make art and animations for games and simulations, at independent game studio Fancy Fish Games.
I also write - usually character-focused fantasy or sci-fi stories.

I have a degree in Philosophy from the University of Massachusetts (Amherst).

Artistic Progress
A fun little collage showing the development of my skills in digital art.

  • Books, poetry, story-telling...
  • Anime
  • Indie Games (Like this one, this one, this one, and this one)
  • Halloween
  • making things - like art, video games, crafts, food, cosplay...
  • Philosophy
  • My talented programmer hubby and our two ridiculously cute cats!
  • Puns, wordplay and nonsensical things
  • strawberries
  • great art reference photos

  • Politics
  • Adult responsibilities
  • Talking to people on the phone
  • Religious solicitation
  • Loud situations/crowds
  • Being in moving vehicles (except trains. Trains are ok)

    1. Hey Ed - Thank you very much! I appreciate the encouragement! :)

  2. Whoa, cool! You were showing up in my twitter recs so I clicked through to your site and lo and behold, another indie dev couple in Arizona!

    Not sure how close you guys live to the valley but if you get the chance you should come visit us over at IGDA PHX! Lots of Phoenix (and occasionally Tucson) game devs meet up monthly at UAT, plus there's free pizza :) http://igdaphoenix.wordpress.com/

    1. Hey Corey Thanks for the heads up about the IGDA meetings! We'll certainly keep that in mind. :)
