Hi! My name is Natalie Nichols, but you may know me as Nat!

In 6th grade, I was voted "Most Likely to be an Artist", and I go through life trying to live up to that prestigious title. I've always invested extra time and practice into my craft through any walk of life I am in, purely because it brings me joy to see what I can create and how far I can push myself to improve while learning new concepts, skills, and software. 

I graduated Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts in 2020 with a B.F.A. in Animation & Visual Effects. Be sure to check out my work on my award-winning thesis film, Identity Crisis!

Currently, I work at thatgamecompany as the events artist for the game Sky: Children of the light. I create character and prop assets from concept all the way through to implementation.

When I'm not 3D modeling or digital painting you can catch me making cosplay, watching my favorite show, NBC's Hannibal, or exploring new places to find good seafood!

The work and meaning that goes into creating film and games is so inspiring to me. It has such an integral part in spreading information and evoking emotion in our society, and I love being a part of that!
