Natalia Sanabria's Photo - International Fashion & Beauty illustrator. Costa Rica

Beautiful women who have confidence, style and a touch of attitude come to the forefront in the work of Costa Rican fashion and beauty illustrator Natalia Sanabria. A talented watercolour artist, she’s an expert when it comes to accentuating the positive and catching the eye with her bright colours and realistic shading.
Working mainly in fashion, publishing and editorial, Natalia Sanabria is influenced by fashion designers like Meadham Kirchhoff, Tsumori Chisato and Prada. Equally, she’s inspired by artists like Gustav Klimt, Toulouse Lautrec, Degas and Egon Schiele because they could make women look powerful yet delicate at the same time – qualities that are clear in Natalia’s work as well. She studied Graphic Design and Painting at the University of Costa Rica.

Approach

Natalia bases her work in reality, but heightens its appeal with splashes of colour and collage. This she fits around the hand-drawn elements to build an appealing composition. She blends coloured graphite pencils with watercolours, and experiments with her technique to find new looks for her clients.

Styles

Delicate, youthful and feminine but with some attitude, Natalia's style brings personality to each illustration she creates. By using mixed media, she’s adept at varying the tone, creating strong characters with an extra dimension or quirkiness to lift the image.

Client list

Natalia has been commissioned by clients including NYLON, Sunglass Hut, MAC Cosmetics, St Regis New York, Stylist, Cosmopolitan and McCann Erickson London.
