Presenting Art by Natalee Aalgaard
Welcome to my professional Artist Portfolio. I am inspired by the past and the overlooked moments in life. Look through my work to see this in action.

Do you have anything that doesn't quite fit right? A beloved pair of Jeans with a hole? Let me fix it up for you!
Custom Costumes and Dresses
Let me be your fairy god mother and make something amazing just for you! Be it costume or gown let me design for you!
Do you see anything you like on my page? Would you like something fine made just for you? Let me add some art to your life!
A costume can tell a story all its own. Art can take on a whole new life when one wears it. Many historical garments were made with the individual in mind. In contrast to our mass-produced clothing of today, tailored and fitted clothing, created for the wearer, reduces the amount of waste and could be altered to continue to fit the individual through body changes. The patterns from the past allow for ways to add to a person’s story. By creating a blend of historical and contemporary ideas, we can see our own stories differently. Using personality surveys to understand the people around me better, I have designed a costume that attempts to equally portray the individuality of each person.
