Natalie Very B. is a published Polish-Canadian illustrator and designer. 

Having grown up in a country with a strong patriarchal regime and an obvious system of inequality, she finds solace in painting ethereal shapes of female figures and the stories that they tell. Her detailed paintings reveal many Slavic folklore influences, while myths and legends are a constant source of inspiration whenever she creates a new body of work. 

As an immigrant artist she often explores the concept of “home”, and the sense of wistful longing and nostalgia that it brings out in her work.

Her childhood experience became a strong incentive for her to make illustrations that depict women as beautiful, empowered, and strong. As a result, her current work is devoted to the investigation of whimsical shapes of feminism in today’s world.
