Hello there! I'm Natasha, and I live with my family on Kodiak Island in the Gulf of Alaska. I can't escape Alaska's influence on my work: coastal Alaska can be gray and green for long periods of time, but when it's sunny and bright here, it's unlike any place on earth! I delight in capturing those sudden moments in my work so that my art brings a happy burst of color to people's lives.
I love working at markets, meeting locals and visitors, and making connections with the people who enjoy my designs. In addition to selling my art independently, I work with Taku Graphics and Alaska Souvenir. Five of my pieces are in the permanent collection at the Baranov Museum.
When I'm not creating, I'm often hiking with the dog, cooking with friends & family, or dreaming of Italy. We just painted our house two shades of blueberry, and every time I drive up, I am happy to be home.
