Hi there! I’m Natalie, but you can call me Nat or NatKP because we’re pretty much besties now! I am the lettering artist & Chief Sprinkler of Positivity Confetti of NatterDoodle, based in Columbus, Ohio. People call me the Kimmy Schmidt of paper because I am all about what’s colorful, quirky, inclusive and ultimately, FUN! My greatest loves are Confetti (both the paper substance and my rescue puppy whose full name is Confetti-cine Alfredo), musical theatre, theme parties, exploring creativity & art, travel, and creating brave & fun spaces for women!
As a proud feminist - I love celebrating the power of women and am committed to helping to build a world that is more inclusive and equitable for all people. In my life and in my art, I am always looking to create experiences that champion women and bring voice to important social causes. One of my goals is to use creativity and art as a way for women to both connect with one another and to embrace the idea of the perfectly imperfect. There is no one right way to do art and there sure as hell ain’t one right way to be a woman!
I'm a gal with many interests and favorites including: lusting after goat cheese, turning my voice high pitched when talking to dogs, trying to tame my wild curly hair, reminiscing about my missed calling as an aspiring Broadway star (in my dreams), aggressively overpacking for my travels, tequila testing, naming any animal I encounter, attempting to be punny and making wildly expressive hand gestures while speaking.
I'm an expert in frivolity and friendship. I'm a proud sister, aunt and daughter and am pro-napping, pro-snarkasm, pro-outings, pro-thunderstorms, pro-dressing like Ms. Frizzle, pro-human rights and pro-being pro things. Outside of my work and art, I'm a devoted volunteer for a non-profit called LeaderShape and am committed to a number of feminist and LGBTQIA causes.

Doodled words, especially positive messages, snarky truths and happy thoughts are our jam. Are they yours too?
