My Story

Hi there! I’m Natalie Fogarty, I am a country girl, I was raised on on a Beef Cattle property, in Northern New South Wales, Australia. I am the mother of gorgeous fraternal twins, wife to a supportive and well grounded husband, daughter of parents who are graphic designers, animal lover, mischief maker and the all round “Black sheep” in my family. I am old enough to care less of the trivial things and less of what others think. But I do care about our environment and how we leave it for our grandkids,  I care for my children’s future and I care deeply for my family and friends,  I like where I am in my life right now.  I live on the escarpment of a foggy mountain, after 17 years of living on the flat plains of Goondiwindi Queensland. I am very humbled to be fortunate enough to have 2 studio spaces. One for my Web & Graphic Design Business (Vigour Graphics) and one for my very messy creative pursuits (Indigo Sky Creative).

My Art

I am thrilled to share my passion for Botanical Art with you through Indigo Sky. For me, there’s nothing more captivating than the world of botanicals—the process of collecting samples, studying their intricate details, and bringing them to life on paper.

Toowoomba, my hometown, is a paradise for artists. It’s a place where flowers reign supreme, from the breathtaking public gardens in Queens Park to the vibrant displays found in our own streets. Living here means being constantly surrounded by beauty, colour, and endless inspiration.

At Indigo Sky, you’ll find a wide range of artistic expressions to add a touch of natural beauty to your space. Whether you prefer original pieces, luxurious linen, stylish stationery, or high-quality prints, each item is carefully designed and made in Toowoomba, except my custom fabrics, and it is produced for me in Brisbane, just down the road.

Botanical Art truly ignites my passion – it is a calming and intriguing journey. From exploring nature and foraging for materials to meticulously studying each plant and mixing colours to match, I find immense joy in breaking the rules for fun. 

My Day Job

I am a Web & Graphic Designer, a creative Marketer, and I do a bit of Commercial Photography when required as well. My business is called Vigour Graphics and I am very well known around Toowoomba and the Darling Downs, having been in business over 17 years and winning many business awards. I offer expert knowledge and delivery of web design, SEO, Web Maintenance, graphic design and branding, and all things business related in between. I work all over Australia. I love my work, I am passionate about visual communications and providing quality service to my clients. Everyday is different, everyday is full on, but I wouldnt miss it for the world.

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” Roald Dahl
