ABOUT

Fine Artist, Graphic Designer, and Retoucher

Watercolor Artist: Natalie Trainor

Hi there! Welcome to my page. I’m a fine artist, graphic designer, and retoucher based in Montreal, Quebec. My love for watercolour and art began at a really young age when I used to watch a local artist paint on television. Every week he would demonstrate a new painting and I tried to replicate it as best as I could with my Crayola paints and dollar store brushes. I continued my studies in college where I graduated with a Graphic and Web Design degree. I’m self-taught and I enjoy combining my graphic design and watercolour skills to create beautiful greeting cards and art prints.

GRAPHIC DESIGN AND RETOUCHING SERVICES

What can I do for you?

GRAPHIC DESIGN

I’ve been working full-time as a graphic designer for 10+ years. I graduated from John Abbott College (Montreal) in 2007 with a degree in Graphic and Web Design. I began my career in the cosmetic industry where I coordinated and executed multiple print projects such as POS displays, merchandizing walls, and web initiatives. My experience also includes co-leading a small team of graphic designers, and managing all graphic services for a global leader in the cosmetic and fragrance industry. 

RETOUCHING

Photo retouching is one of my passions. I love working in Photoshop and my degrees in Photography and Digital Imaging (Photoshop) have allowed me to develop a keen eye for detail. I always see photo retouching as enhancing the image, not correcting it. While my goal is to improve the overall image, I always try to maintain the integrity of the original photo. No matter the subject, from portraiture to architecture, I’m able to bring the image to life; just as you, the photographer, imagined it.
