Artist Name: Barnes, Natasha
Natasha Barnes is a South African artist, born in 1969.
She has been painting since the age of seven. Her natural talent and pure passion for painting has led this self-taught artist to develop a profound style, exhibiting expressionism, colour and movement. Her paintings are inspirations found in her travels and the love for the rich African images surrounding her life.
Apart from a few art lessons as a child, Natasha has had no formal art training. After completing school, she studied Cordon Bleu cookery and worked as a cookery editor and food stylist for a leading South African Magazine, before opening her own cookery school. Her love for the brush finally led to the decision to give up everything and paint professionally.
Natasha paints in Acrylic and endless inspiration is absorbed in the mind and transferred to the canvas with looking at the subject.
Her work is exhibited extensively and can be found in private and corporate collections worldwide.
“’Beyond Borders’ is what I do: every painting a door to travel through, a simple reflection of what is happening in my mind. Some days are quiet-some days are abstract.
But every mood is a door, and beyond that, a new painting, a whole new way of looking at my world.
Inspirations are found in my travels. I absorb the moments an transfer the feelings to my canvas bright and bold. Every stroke moulds my signature, is do doing, creating another piece of Natasha Barnes.”
