Natalie Hanssen (1970) is Dutch textwriter and cartoonist.
Quite a broad repertoire, though limited to the Dutch and English language. Exceptional in articles and reportages from a personal perspective. Copywriter. Fine columnist & ghostwriter. Wrote about travels. Curious. Loves writing about science & psychology, but – come to think of it – takes the same approach when it comes to interviewing a craftswoman about her work.
Cartoonist. For magazines, advertisement and powerpoint presentations that want attention. Working on cartoon-drawing-movies [see homepage] & stopmotion animation.
Able to write in English (proofread by English native speaker). Cartoons can be delivered in Danish.
After getting my degree in (theoretical) psychology I started as a copywriter in advertising. I became a freelancer within a year (1996) to be able to broaden my working field. Ever since I have been doing a broad range of sometimes unexpected things – next to writing articles and drawing cartoons. They vary from writing commercials for Amsterdam television and thinking along with new educational concepts, occasional giving workshops and making a book about Hollands foremost psychotherapists.
