Greetings! Natalya here..aka NAT aka ImaNATural Artist
Welcome to the vibrant world of Natalya Hutchinson, a visual artist with an innate talent for creation. Born and raised in the charming town of Missouri City, Texas, just southwest of Houston, Natalya discovered her artistic voice as an introvert, expressing herself through the realms of art, sports, and humor.
At the tender age of 3, her fascination with drawing and colors began, setting the stage for her lifelong artistic journey. By the time she reached 8 years old, she was already redesigning Bratz dolls and their fashionable attire. By 15, she was sketching her dream shoes and painting on clothing, showcasing her unique flair for creativity.
While she initially developed a passion for graphic design during high school, Natalya decided to change her path when she entered college. It was during her second year that she uncovered a new artistic dimension, leading her to graduate from the University of North Texas in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Art in Printmaking and a minor in Entrepreneurship.
Following her academic pursuits, Natalya dedicated herself to teaching painting and drawing to children aged 5 to 18 at the Sugar Land School of Fine Art, a prestigious private institution. Eager to expand her knowledge and impact on her community, she returned to the academic realm and earned her Masters of Art from the University of Houston. Her focus on community engagement and education in under-served communities came to fruition during her Practicum study at Fresh Arts, where she discovered a newfound passion for event and program planning.
Thus began her remarkable journey. Over the years, Natalya has continued to cultivate her graphic design skills, honing her craft through various projects and personal endeavors. The love for her artistry never waned, propelling her to this moment. In 2019, she was featured in Voyage Houston magazine, gaining recognition for her exceptional talent. Her work has graced the walls of numerous Missouri City libraries and event showcases, leaving an indelible mark on the local art scene.
You may have encountered Natalya at some of the most notable artistic events in the region, including TrapArt Houston, Pancakes 'n' Booze, RAW Artist 2018 showcase, and MVA Gallery. Her presence and creations have captivated audiences, leaving them in awe of her boundless imagination.

What is ImaNATural?
ImaNATural was created in 2017 and rebranded in 2020. ImaNATural = "I'm a natural" a mantra that I didn't even realize I was truly embracing. ImaNATural came about due to the constant self talk I did to push through college. Between pushing through a new art form, sports, and transitioning my hair into its natural state all during college, I moved by that mantra. And I as I embraced this new belief I realized that my nickname, Nat, was apart of the word "natural". Putting "I'm a natural" all together was about bringing a chill and confident vibe to the mix. I felt called to this as if it truly described me. As time evolved, so did the meaning.
BELIEVE FROM WITHIN. That's where it all begins. If we don't see our own potential and trust our Creator, then how do we move forward as an individual? That was a question for myself. As someone who genuinely wants better for the world, my people, and my close loved ones, I wanted to create art that encouraged just that. I wanted to be of service in helping goals be achieved and putting smiles on faces by creating a representation of the customer through creation. We are all capable of reaching unbelievable goals. We all have a gift. And we all should push to be authentically ourselves. So let's do it...
To upgrade lives through divine artistry and awareness.
To help create a positive atmosphere of love, happiness, and inspiration in the mind and other sacred spaces with the touch of my creations.
I live and create by these core values everyday. I have grown to understand the importance of them and hope to inspire others to do the same as well.
To inspire and make people feel amazing. To encourage to go for what they love. I create to inform. I create to connect with other like-minded individuals and share our values. I create because I want to be able to teach through this journey that I’m on so others can be aware of what’s possible. I create to learn... which is why I created the ImaNATural Brand.
