Just a little bit about me….  I love to draw and design. I’m mom to four kids under the age of 10 who love to draw and paint.   And am lucky to be married to fellow illustrator Dave Malan. Who also happens to be kind of ok at drawing.

After earning a BFA in illustration from BYU in 2003 I worked for an educational software company called Imagine Learning as an illustrator.  I then changed jobs and became creative director for Provo Craft until 2009 when I started freelancing full time.

For business inquiries and collaborations please email me using my contact page.


My clients include, Walmart, Target, Coats, Free Spirit, Cricut, Provo Craft, Making Memories, Cuttlebug, Imagine Learning, Covenant Communications, Petite Lemon, Shutterfly, Ensign Magazine, Friend Magazine, My Minds Eye, Modify Ink, and more.

One thought on “bio

  1. Natalie; What a wonderful story. I’m the youtuber that has created a series for your Simple Cards Cricut cartridge. You’d sent me an email asking if you could post one of the videos. I’d be honored. Is it ok that I post something about you/this on my blog?
