Through art Natasha explores a love of birds, nature and astronomy, conveying the magic and beauty that surrounds us every day. Inspired by the form and simplicity of the winter landscape, she often paints scenes that reflect where she would like to be and tends to use colours that evoke a strong memory or feeling, making the work symbolic and slightly dream-like.
