Statement:
The inspiration for Natasha’s work comes from her connection to the nature and energy of the surroundings where she lives. She draws not only from her experiences of living in the Sierra Nevada mountains, but also from the ancient spirit of the land. The two major depictions in her work are animals and shamans. The animals serve as a link to spirit guide totems, and the shamans relate to the spiritual guardians.

The wood dictates what the finished product becomes. Natasha sees an outline from the grain and knots, then allows the piece to become whatever it becomes. The main source of wood she uses comes from the discards of building projects. She brings these pieces home and brings them back to life.

Natasha has always created art, starting as a child with her aunt and father who were both very crea+ve. In high school she would take workshops at the community center and had a brief s+nt at MTSU Murfreesboro Tennessee, signing on for a BFA. Her move to Hollywood, California, stopped the BFA idea, but while living in California she still took art classes and workshops.

“I am a proud outsider artist”

She has always been one of those types who stares at wood or clouds; anything that holds natural textures and picks out images. “Like the Rorschach ink blot tests, I see all sorts of images: faces, figures, animals, and insects.” The piece of wood may instantly show its self and then again a piece of wood may sit in her studio for months before she see’s what it holds as far as painting a story. She starts with a vague idea of what the wood fits and then as the painting progresses, she feels an outside force meet an inside force and the outcome is the painting.
