Self-taught Natasha is deeply influenced by nature, both in her native South Africa and from her many travels around the world. She explores the relationship between water and the deep hidden treasures found beneath the surface. In particular the lotus flower, which provides endless inspiration as a bloom that flowers only in adversity.
She believes that like the lotus, beautiful things come from dark places. Her work reflects a kind of transcended beauty that is abstract in nature yet resonates with those who find the connection to her mark making.
She further explores the complex nature of habitat and identity found around water. Drawing from her own experiences, the crocodile and Jacana waterfowl provide the connection to her imaginary world, these creatures are found in many of her works and provide a link between places, spaces, lives and continents. The lotus bloom is most often seen scribbled in childlike form and is signatory to her work.
