Natalie, hails from Milford, New Hampshire, graduated from Rivier College with a BFA in Illustration, and currently works as a web designer for WhippleHill Communications designing websites for schools.

I'm very lucky to have a wonderful studio where I can do my work. My husband and I purchased a 120 year old house in New Hampshire that happened to have an attached barn. With the help of my Dad we turned the barn's hayloft into an art studio. Now I have plenty of room to spread out and work on my paintings, furniture, sewing and any other project I can think up.

On her first pair of Fluevogs:

The first time I ever saw a pair of shoes with the Mini heel I knew those were the shoes for me. I'm lucky enough to live close to the Boston store so I bought my first pair (Mini Qtee) and have been obsessed ever since.

On the reason why she decided to enter the FluevogCreative contest:

I started submitting designs for the various FluevogCreative contests because I love the shoes and the idea of being able to create a design with few restrictions was too good of an opportunity to pass up. It's a luxury I don't often get when designing for my regular clients. The thought of having my work published in magazines was a motivator as well. I almost didn't enter this particular contest, but I had paid a visit to the Boston Fluevog store and was inspired to try one more time. The next morning, bright and early I created this design in a few hours.

Inspiration behind her winning design Angelic Sole:

This is the forth time I had entered a FluevogCreative contest, so once I started, the ideas came pretty quickly for this one. The name "Angel" and their Satan resistant soles immediately made me think of the stained glass windows in churches, which is what I based my design on.
