Natasha Kudashkina was born and raised in Siberia, Russia. As a child, she was identified as having unique talent and entered into an educational stream focused on art scholarship. She studied in this art school for 10 years until she moved to Prince Edward Island, Canada at the age of seventeen. The same year of her arrival, immersed in a new country and language, she created her first collection of acrylic works. They were accepted at a local gallery and her first sales as an artist were made.
After completing a graphic design program in Holland College, PEI, Natasha moved to Toronto where she was enveloped by its rich culture and diverse artistic community. Exposed to new art forms and ways of seeing, her portfolio expanded to include different vantages and media.
Natasha is a complete artist, equally comfortable on skin, canvas, screen and concrete. She has done commercial work, live painting, gallery shows, murals, videos and custom art. Her work adorns hotels in Asia and the walls of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Her work is inspired by human and natural beauty, and is overflowing with fantastical imagery and the stuff of dreams. In her view, it is this space, and its hidden meanings, that unites all people.
Her images are a portal into our mind's eye, and through it, the visceral world of emotions, thoughts, aspirations and hopes. Proving the world as a potential canvas, her art takes the familiar and transforms it into something fantastic, more alive. Her style is vibrant, colourful, and dynamic. From a deep commitment to art’s potential to soothe, enliven and heal, her themes are overwhelmingly positive. They focus on love, nature, beauty, community, the threads that tie the country she left and the one she found.
With a seemingly insatiable drive to create, she paints or draws every day, conjuring worlds vivid and new, where the standard rules of physics, shape and colour need not apply, where anything is possible. Natasha’s love for art has taken her around the globe, and she shares her passion for it with joy, happiness and pride.

"Art is powerful. It is born from our imagination, and lives there. With that in mind, I only create kind and peaceful art, something that brings a good feeling to the viewer. My intent is to share more love, beauty and kindness into our world. " ~ Natasha Kudashkina
