Natalya is a classically trained fine artist who spent 6 years lecturing and teaching people how to paint, draw, and grow their creativity. Upon realizing that the Renaissance had in fact already ended, she decided to join the modern world and is now a front end developer at Rooster Teeth. She loves writing code as much as she loves painting, and she wants to convince the world that writing code is an art form. She gets excited about updating and sharing old school design theory and knowledge and applying it to the infinite canvas that is the internet.
Natalya loves sharing all kinds of knowledge. In addition to her BA in Studio Art, she also earned a bachelor’s in Developmental Psychology and a master’s degree in Creativity and Talent Development, and does her best to weave interesting facts about how our brains work, learn, and develop into every talk. When she’s not writing code, she paints, travels, and drinks absurd amounts of coffee.
