Meet the Artists
Natalie Very B.
Natalie Very B. is an award-winning Polish-Canadian illustrator, muralist, and Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). Having grown up in a country with a strong patriarchal regime and a social system based on inequality, she strives to make public art that promotes feminist values, self-love, and body neutrality worldwide. As an immigrant who did not feel like she belonged anywhere for many years, she found solace in painting colourful landscapes inspired by the soothing quality of nature in Canada, her new home.
