Natasha has always been a traditional artist. From the moment she was able to grasp a pencil or hold a brush, Natasha has spent countless hours honing her craft, until she turned thirteen and found her true passion: photography. Whether she is working in digital art or photography, Natasha’s work is all-consuming, as she devotes every second of the day to either creating or envisioning what she will do next.
Not only is Natasha a proven artist and photographer, but she is emboldened with an entrepreneurial spirit, having turned her love for photography into a business at the age of fourteen, and she has not slowed down since. Natasha is fond of doing fashion and editorial work, but is even more zealous when it comes to her ardor for artistic, conceptual portraits.
Many consider Natasha’s style to be fairytale like, presumably due to its unearthly qualities. However, Natasha’s work weighs in favor of neither the dark nor the light, choosing instead to create not only the princess or the villain, but both, simultaneously. For Natasha, capitalizing on themes of ethereal fantasy grants her as much delight as compiling images that are more dark and mischievous. Longing to live in both of those conflicting, yet coexisting worlds, Natasha craves the whole story and will never be satisfied with just one side of the narrative.
“into the woods” will be on display at the Appalachian Artisan Center through June 30, 2016.
