Many thanks to Lee Tran Lam for her wonderful post!
“I’m totally obsessed with homes, houses, interiors, architecture,” says Natalie Singh.
This fixation translates nicely to her illustrations, which are inspired by actual homes as well as rooms she’s seen online – from websites such as Mim Design,Design To Inspire – and on the pages of Inside Out (in particular, Andrea Duff’s home in Byron Bay from ‘Hills & Harbours’ story in our March-April 2012 edition – you can find this on Zinio if you’d like to see more). “The bedroom is inspired by a house I lived in, in inner Sydney, when I was a student,” she says.
Now Natalie is based in London, where she runs a print/design business called Artistic Visions and also works up some illustrations on Etsy.
She also does one-off works – “I’ve recently completed a commission for a house portrait of a house in Randwick, as well as a still-life in oils for a woman in Glasgow!” Currently, she’s also collaborating with a fabric manufacturer in the US to develop repeat patterns for print. Hopefully future issues of our mag might even spark a few ideas or two.
