NATALIE ESLAMI (she/her) is a NYC-based Iranian-American interdisciplinary fine artist and scenic designer for stage and screen. Originally from Memphis and Los Angeles, she recently graduated from Carnegie Mellon Drama with her BFA in Scenic Design. Seeking a worldly and multifaceted arts education, Natalie enjoyed additional courses in Architecture, Art History, Global Anthropology & Museum Studies, and Studio Art, and has integrated this knowledge into her design process. She also works as a scenic painter and freelance fine artist (and dreams of illustrating a children’s book someday). 
Prior to pursuing her degree in Drama, Natalie was classically trained in the visual arts for seven years. She closely observes the intricate and diverse details of the world around her and strives to reflect them in her storytelling. Natalie is especially interested in arts accessibility/education and collaborative work. She is passionate about projects tackling relevant social issues, complex identities, and the Middle-Eastern experience.
Select design credits include COSÌ FAN TUTTE (CMU), A HIT DOG WILL HOLLER (CMU), LITTLE WOMEN - THE MUSICAL (Bristol Valley Theater), FRIENDS WITH AMENITIES (Off-Broadway Premiere, 59E59 Theaters). 
Natalie is a big fan of urban sketching, breakfast foods, HGTV, and her cats, Fletcher and Pepper.
