Natalie Very B. (Bochenska) :

Polish born illustrator from the 90s, analogue and digital artist, portrait photographer, and storyteller with focus on Polish folklore, female bodily existence, and secrets of the faraway galaxies.

She has been sent home from kindergarten with complaints about the explicit nature of her drawings since the age of three. 

Currently, she lives in her Toronto based home-studio surrounded by paint splatter and the sweet sounds of meow.
