Nathalie Trovato was born in Southern France. After many years travelling around the world, she finally chose to settle down in Brooklyn-New York with her family. Although she speaks 5 languages, she is essentially a visual translator eager to invent new connections between words and images.

She has collaborated with a number of publishers such as Esperluète, Passage Piétons, Donner à voir and has illustrated texts by classic authors Guillaume Apollinaire and Jean Anouilh, as well as contemporary writers Sophie Braganti, Patrick Joquel and Maud Franklin. Her work was showed at Cork Printmakers - Ireland, Muriel Guépin Gallery - Brooklyn, NY, The Bronx Blue Bedroom project - NY, and Musée des Beaux-Arts in Nice, France, etc. During the New York launch of the book "Le Taxi" by Maud Franklin in 2010, her drawings were exhibited at Book Court, Greenlight and Rizzolis' bookstore in New York City.

Whereas Nathalie has mainly been working in printmaking (etchings and linocuts), she has recently created for Home Grown Books a number of playful and poetic images where the use of paper and scissors came as an evidence to translate her enchanted minimalist approach to drawing.
