Hello there, Welcome to my Website, it features my artwork and animated short films as well as a link to my Blog. Feel free to browse through this website and take a look at my work!
Hi I'm Natalie Priest an Artist, Illustrator and Animator, I also do a bit of blogging. Currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Animation at The University for the Creative Arts in Farnham. I also achieved a BA Hons Degree in Animation at the same Univeristy in 2005.
I liked to create Art and Illustration which is mostly Digital using Photoshop and Sketchbook Pro as well as my Ipad,
I also like to paint and draw Portraits. Another passion is making animated films using animation programmes such as TVPaint and Toon Boom Studio and my Ipad, and hand drawn work.
My style in mainly simple, bold and lively, I like to invent Characters and use bright Colours to reflect my love of all the Rainbow! I inspiration comes from children's book Illustration and art i created as a child as well as esoteric themes.
I also like to travel overseas to do Voluntary work such as Conservation work, working In an Orphanage and teaching children English. I have been to Madagascar two times, as well as Ghana and Brazil.
ZACK! A 1 minute
I have recently completed a 1 minute short animation for my MA Animation course. The short film Is about a young 6 year old boy who has ADHD. He flits from one activity to another as his mother demands that he do his homework. The animation can be viewed on Vimeo, but you need a password. Please message me If you would like to view this animation. I aim to get it screened In some film festivals.

'ZACK AND THE RAINBOW: Making Friends'.
A work in progress.
II am currently animating a final project for my MA Animation course.
At his new school, 6 year old Zack, just comes on too strong and is constantly rejected with his attempts at befriending the other Children. But the arrival of a girl called Rainbow, changes the fate of Zack’s encounters.
The film will be I'm guessing around 5 minutes long when completed. This will be an ongoing project that will be finished in August 2017,
so stay tooned for my progress!
