Natasha Harvey creates both abstract and representational paintings. She is a mixed media artist and collage is a key element in her work. Her inspiration flows from daily life, dreams, nature, popular culture, fantasy and a variety of cultural interests and experiences. Natasha has discovered throughout her education and life that the process of painting is as important as the completed work of art. The paint is given a voice. The energy of medium, expressed in drips and puddles, springs to life without the intervention of a brush or knife. As a result, her work is neither controlled or contrived.
Natasha is an artist and educator. She graduated from UBC Okanagan with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, and from UBC Vancouver with a Bachelor’s in Education. Pushing paint with a brush, knife, or hand is an experience that has always filled her life with joy and always will.
