199: Art for Social Justice, Mental Health & Representation w/ Natalie Byrne
Art inspires and touches our souls. It has the power to bring us together and create incredible emotional experiences. Natalie uses her gift of creativity to paint the colorful world of her friends and family, one that brings peace and celebrates our differences. She believes in creating from the heart and not leaving anyone behind.
Natalie Byrne is a Latina illustrator & author based in London whose main purpose is to educate on mental health, relationships, and social issues through her colorful art style. She has a book called Period, which educates people of all ages and genders about everything they need to know about female menstruation and has also worked with brands such as Adobe, Logitech, Vans, and Nike. When Natalie is not illustrating, she runs the Going Places Podcast where she invites friends and guests to talk about their creativity, process, and journey.
