Natasha is an artist specialising in traditional Moroccan painting known as zouaq. Born in London in 1984, she developed an interest in North Africa and Islamic art after travelling to the region as a child.

In 2004 she went to the University of Cambridge to study for a degree in Arabic and French, where she specialised in the Moroccan dialect of Arabic. During her degree she spent a year living in Fes, the capital of traditional arts in Morocco, where she undertook a ten month apprenticeship in traditional Moroccan zouaq. She studied under a local master craftsman in the old medina in Fes, who taught her the traditional techniques of creating this beautiful art form. Since returning to England she continues to practise zouaq and has developed her own unique style.
