Protecting nature and it’s inhabitants is something that resonates so deeply to my core, no doubt partly influenced in childhood by televised David Attenborough documentaries. Sir David's distinct voice, childlike wonder and awe helped shape my own fascination with the world around us. So I was beyond excited when Harper Collins commissioned a series of animal and plant illustrations for a beautiful and purposeful gift book, responding to the wise words of our most treasured nature-lover, Sir David Attenborough.

Gracing our living rooms since 1954, the world’s favourite naturalist has sought out the most wondrous and awe-inspiring creatures and habitats, leaving me with infinite inspiration. His passion for discovery led to my own expedition: to find some of the Earth's most unique and beautiful creatures that would best honour, celebrate and represent Sir David’s voice.

Hallo, nice to sea you here!

I'm Nat,  I’m an Australian artist. I create feel-good art, illustration and lettering. Informed by a background in visual communication and art direction, I work with brands, agencies, publishers and people to communicate stories of connection, empowerment and awe. My practice is a sparkly, colourful ode to the wonder and joy I stumble upon in my universe using hand-drawn and digital techniques. A dream-like language of place, nature, words and people are playfully explored from my studio next to the ocean, amongst the trees on the south-east coast of Australia, on Djiringanj Country. Swimming, reading, plant-hoarding, travelling and wandering with my doggo in the forest keep me feeling human.
