Third culture kid, global citizen, UN kid; these are some of the titles which perfectly describe Penelope Natalie's childhood. She is a Mexican girl who has never lived in Mexico yet is extremely proud of her culture. With a childhood spent between Mexico, Costa Rica, Honduras, Peru, Jamaica, and USA; staying in one place seems very unnatural to her. After obtaining her high school diploma in Kingston, Jamaica, she moved to New York City to begin her studies at Parsons the New School for Design in Strategic Design & Management.
As a third culture kid, Penelope prides in her ability to work well with others, and her passion for expressing herself through visual art. She loves offering her talents as an artist to support any type of projects using her skills as a graphic designer, model, and photographer. She has been working in the creative industry for over 5 years, assisting in projects such as the early development of CR Fashion Book. After obtaining her BBA at Parsons, she moved to Berlin and started working as a freelancer, creating artistic projects for major clients such as Johnnie Walker. She is fluent in InDesign, Illustrator, Lightroom, and Photoshop as well as social media savvy.
Penelope's goal is to communicate complex information in a straightforward manner with the objective of evoking positive change. Her current project is developing images integrating high-fashion activism with the intention of eliminating anti-cannabis stigma.
