Is a South African artist and has been painting since the age of seven.
Her natural talent and pure passion for painting has led this self-taught artist to develop a profound style, exhibiting expressionism, colour and movement. Her paintings are inspirations found in her travels and the love for the rich images surrounding her life.
After completing school, she studied Cordon Bleu cookery and worked as a cookery editor and food stylist for a leading South African Magazine, before opening her own cookery school. During her cookery years Natasha painted part time, and exhibited extensively in South Africa. Her love for the brush finally led to the decision to give up everything and paint professionally. Natasha became a professional artist in 1998.
Natasha paints in water based mediums, the paint application is thick and sometimes textured. Her subject dictates the flow of the paint. Her love for sumi-e brushwork can sometimes be seen in her watercolours.
Abstracts, Cats, African landscape and Flowers provide endless inspiration; they are absorbed in the mind and transferred to the canvas without looking at the subject.
Her work can be found in corporate and private collections around the world and has been exhibited extensively in the UK, America and the Middle East. Exploring new ideas and experimenting with creative thought ensures that Natasha’s paintings grow with her passion to enjoy a long and fruitful career. Natasha’s work is currently published world-wide in open and limited editions by International print publishers. She has done work for Hallmark cards and her paintings are currently decorating the set of two of Africa’s most loved Television productions.
