Natalie McKean

Artist Natalie McKean creates striking and gorgeous works of art that often focus on the intersection of the natural world and machines/robots. She actually started out working in pen and ink, but found that she was filling in all the negative space with black anyway, so scratch art was a natural next step. She and her dog Rowan live in her northern California hometown of Cloverdale, where she works out of her live/work studio. She makes a living off of her art, which she admits is “hard, but worth every bit of it.”
