Ep.1 – Watercolour Course: Juggling the Corona-Coaster as an Artist

Introducing Australia’s favourite watercolour course teacher Natalie Martin from the Surf Coast in Victoria, Australia.

Natalie has a dedicated studio in the Ashmore Arts precinct in Torquay. The studio is where she thinks, creates, makes an income and gets inspired on a daily basis.

We sat down for a chat with the talented artist, illustrator and designer to garner some wisdom and advice. We also took the chance to launch Season 2 of the Surf Coast Creatives podcast.

Natalie covers the full gammut of design, illustration and artisitic flair for devout fans and a select number of clients.

Find out how Natalie worked as a designer at Rip Curl for 6 years before taking the leap as a full-time artist and creative.

A Watercolour Course Inspired By Australian Bushland

Taking the leap as a full-time creative gave Natalie the chance to create her very own online watercolour course…

“I’ve painted with watercolour for over 10 years and have been teaching it through workshops and classes for 4 or so years now. 

I really enjoy teaching and sharing the magic of watercolour. ‘Welcome to Watercolour’ is my first online course and I’ve just released my second course on my all-time favourite subject COLOUR called ‘the Magic of Colour Mixing’,” said Natalie.

Check out the courses on Natalie’s website or access them on Skillshare and get 2 months FREE access courtesy of the Surf Coast Creatives podcast.

Otherwise, tune into the pod and let us know what you think with a review on iTunes or your favourite pod platform. Natalie’s energy and passion for life as a creative are infectious that is for sure.

Thanks again for your time Natalie!
