Natalie Westaby was born the youngest of three daughters in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Her first artistic endeavor, at the age of 4, was drawing a scene of the current museum exhibit "Backyard Monsters" on the family Ford Taurus with a rock.
Her parents desperately steered her into more acceptable forms of artwork.
And look where it got them.
In 2018, she received her B.A.S. in Digital Animation and Design from Ferris State University.
Natalie can be found on LinkedIn and Facebook, as well as on Twitter, Tumblr, and Patreon under the name CrossroadsDog.
