'Natalia approached our animation project with imaginative creativity, efficient organization, and a pleasant, collaborative attitude throughout. I appreciated the care and attention she gave, and I was very pleased with the final film. I'd welcome an opportunity to work with her again in the future.'

"Working with Natalia was a pleasure from start to finish. She was quick to grasp our fairly complex and nebulous brief and brought her own creative ideas with intelligence and sensitivity. Her talent as an illustrator was clear to see and her hand-drawn animations had style, life and character. I couldn't recommend her highly enough." - David Salmon, Director, Breath Creative Ltd
"An exceptional professional and a pleasure to work with. Natalia delivered an incredible video off very limited information, showcasing her skills and creativity." - Roopesh Patel, Director, Money-Mate
