Originally from Northern Ontario, Ottawa artist Natalie Rivet creates an array of eclectic handmade goods such as punny greeting cards, durable sketchbooks, and original artwork.
Proudly made in Canada, Natalie Rivet Art & Studio is the by-product of years of hard work and a lot of love. She holds a BFA from the University of Ottawa, and a Fine Arts Certificate from Algonquin College. She has received the Gunter Nolte Commemorative Bursary for excellence in drawing in 2017.
