Today we're putting a spotlight on fellow artist Natalie Lundeen
and her handmade trinket dishes!
Introducing: Natalie Lundeen
Illustrator of picture books and maker of pretty things.
Natalie spent ten years painting portraits and landscapes as a traditional oil painter, was a Mentor member of the prestigious California Art Club, and was featured in Southwest Art magazine as a young artist to collect. After her daughter was born she tarted illustrating for children. As a lifetime lover of picture books, and a grown-up who never quite grew up, she felt like she'd finally found her home.
Natalie and I met years ago in Los Angeles but we recently reconnected in a small business group that focuses on helping artists flourish and prosper which you can read more about here. I love Natalie's work. It's so fun and playful, always making me smile when I see her posts pop up on my Instagram feed.
In addition to illustrating picture books and selling her prints, Natalie will occasionally make limited edition trinket dishes (as seen here!). I was honored when she reached out and asked if she could use the new Heart Collection when photographing her latest creations -- which are all sold out already. Not surprising, right?
I highly recommend checking out Natalie's website here and shopping her Etsy shop here. For a special glimpse behind the scenes, make sure to follow her on Instagram. She also announces her limited edition work on her email newsletter and on social media so keep a close eye out! Hopefully she will be making more of her pretty trinket dishes you can purchase one. ❤️
While you are waiting on her trinket dishes to come back in stock, you can shop the new Heart Collection featured in the photos of this post and get free shipping over $75!
I hope you enjoyed this special artist spotlight and thank you for supporting American artists. Have a wonderful week!
