My name is Natasha. I'm an artist and a scuba-diver.
I'm from Vladivostok,
Russia. I have loved ocean and underwater world since I was a
kid. I grew up near the Japanese Sea (also known as East Sea).
I have the inspiration and dream to understand and protect ocean
When I go scuba-diving or snorkeling, I feel as if we are one
with this wonderful moving world of life, colors and light. The
ocean gives me creativity. I dive, I see various fish, underwater
animals and memorize movements, shapes and colors. Then I paint
it in my own style. I paint on different kinds of paper. I like
Korean traditional paper, colored pencils, watercolors and crayons.
I'm a scuba divemaster, so when I dive with a group of people,
I guide them through this unique underwater world and share interesting
and beautiful sea life with them. When I dive for fun, I relax
and play like a seal or a dolphin underwater. When we do underwater
clean-up, I feel responsibility to remove as much garbage as I
can. This experience helps me in my painting.
I love to paint
the underwater world and tropical and subtropical flowers. All
the flowers presented on my website were painted during living
on Jeju Island and during travel to the Philippines. None of the
flowers was broken or cut during the process of painting.
During my art exhibitions I'm happy to see people of different
ages and occupations looking at my works.
