Natalie Minyu Li is a self-taught visual artist whose style is inspired by children's stories and street art culture. She juxtaposes playful characters with colorful doodles to appeal to our optimistic, inquisitive inner child. Raised in both multilingual Shenzhen and rural Tennessee, she uses art to spread positivity, encourage open-mindedness, and challenge societal expectations of young creatives and intellectuals.

Also mathematically inclined, she previously spent four years in finance. Her team helped distressed hedge funds reach the first cross-tranche debt deal with Puerto Rico in its bankruptcy (her clients headlined in Bloomberg article).
