I recently discovered Native Essence Art at the Latino Art Fair. The artwork’s beauty is enhanced by the thoughtfulness and care that goes into creating such meaningful pieces that reflect the subjects’ humanity.

“This was a gift for me and I love it so much! You captured Doug perfectly” -Annie, Portland, OR


“This is so beautiful and wonderful and the smile! This is perfectly Knödel! Thank you so much!” -Krista, Madison, WI

I love the piece I bought from her. She’s very talented and I appreciate the expressions she uses with her work. Highly recommend.
“Native Essence Art did a phenomenal job of capturing our childrens’ childhood! Natalie took time and care to ensure our boys’ interests and personalities were fully represented in their portraits. She consulted with us throughout the design process to make sure we were 100% satisfied. We could not be happier with her custom portraits of our boys!” -Kelly
