Natalya Shelburne

Natalya Shelburne is a classically trained fine artist who spent six years lecturing and teaching people how to paint, draw, and grow their creativity. Upon realizing that the Renaissance had in fact already ended, Natalya decided to join the modern world and is now a frontend developer. She loves writing code as much as she loves painting and wants to convince the world that writing CSS is an art form. Natalya holds a bachelor's degree in developmental psychology and a master's degree in creativity and talent development.

When she’s not writing code, Natalya paints, teaches, and drinks coffee.
