Something about me 

In her younger years, Natalie Olsen’s artistic nature and preoccupation with the printed word sadly precluded her from other pursuits, such as high school popularity and good hair. It did, however, lead her to art school at the University of Alberta, where she over-kerned and under-slept. She was then lured into the world of publishing, where these proclivities are put to better use.

She started a company, called it Kisscut Design (having nothing to do with canoodling or sharp-edged tools), and has since gone on to receive her fair share of acknowledgement, by way of flattering tweets, gifted bottles of scotch, and some awards.

She currently considers herself “prairie-coastal” while dividing her time between Inglewood in Calgary and Main Street in Vancouver.
