Hello! I’m Natasha.
After 14 years of flying long haul with British Airways and experiencing many different cultures from around the world, I’ve decided to go back to my roots of art and creativity. My job with British Airways has given me many valuable skills. Working with new teams every flight means that I have developed strong organisational skills and I am able to work within time constraints whilst maintaining a professional manner.
The people skills I’ve gained, and cultures I have seen,has allowed me to work part time on my creative passions of styling, interiors and property development. I am great with a hammer and paint brush! I have a passion for floristry thanks to my mother who was a florist at Longhams, and also antiques, thanks to my father’s passion for history and antique fairs.
My creative journey started very early after I studied art and design, which included specialist painting, and life drawing. I’ve also studied painting and decorating. I got my first taste for creativity working on the MTV awards, working as an assistant scenic artist before moving onto the Disney channel. Working along side two main scenic artists, I gained experience in scenic painting and specialist painting both here and abroad. I have also worked for a scenic build company where I helped tobuild various sets for the Loreal awards and the West end. My painting and decorating qualification has also been extremely useful in helping us to renovate our period properties.
Alongside this, I have also spent some time in an interior design practice in Battersea where I helped to develop ideas for a large development in Clapham Common. My duties here included sourcing various props to style the show flat for its launch. It gave me confidence in sourcing and creating mood boards, and presentations.
I have been featured in ‘Style At Home’ magazine, where I styled and sourced the Christmas look for my home,which was fantastic. After this I was invited to a White Company photoshoot for the day. This was very exciting and opened my eyes to the amazing stylists who worked alongside the brand to create the look for autumn 2020.
I also help my husband who is an e-commerce photographer for an online shopping channel brand. I support him by providing ideas for various shoots and pull together mood boards for future shoots.
I would love now to build on my experience and start assisting full-time. I am based near Gatwick airport, a 45min train ride away from London and I have a clean drivers licence.
I look forward to meeting you very soon. I also make a great cup of tea or coffee!
