Natalie Raskin (she/they) is a painter, bookmaker, writer, and educator raised and living in Brooklyn, New York. She builds worlds out of queerness, loneliness, and alter-egos. Across mediums, storytelling functions in mapping feelings and finding places of belonging for strange and awkward dreams. Natalie has been working in socio-emotional education settings since 2019, and develops individualized making and writing experiments with students to support them in developing autonomy with different forms of language. Natalie is an MFA candidate in Studio Art at Queens College, and a Social Practice CUNY Fellow. She is interested in participatory reading, exploring the ways in which the art book can be community-facing, visually engaging, and a tool for learning.
