Natasha, short for Natalia, has lived most of her life in Oregon, though her first language is Russian. She is finishing up two degrees at Oregon State University, which are: BFA: Applied Visual Arts and BS: Computer Science Applied in Fine Arts. During her college career she has spent time abroad at Saint Petersburg State University in Russia, worked on a High Altitude Rocketry Team, and has had international gallery shows in Poland and Japan.
When she is not working, Natasha enjoys hiking, making Russian and Kazakh cuisine, spending time with animals, and exploring new places. Art continues to be part of her daily life whether it be through photography or working in the printmaking studio. One of her current projects is to grow a native garden.
