I can’t wait for you to join The Simple Art of Painting Abstract

I wish that when I started my art journey 25 years ago I had someone to show me the ropes. But as a self-taught artist living & working in South Africa those opportunities were not available to me. Today I immerse myself in the power of online learning and it is my wish that even if you go on to learn just one new thing from me, your art journey would have benefited from my energy and have been worth it.

Getting to know Natasha ? 


I would love to tell you more about myself and how my own journey has lead me to this very page.

Some of you may already know me as one of South Africa's most licensed artists; however a little known fact is that I am entirely self-taught and started my career with little more than a paintbrush and a fax machine.

Here I am almost three decades later; highly experienced in the business of art, selling, painting & marketing worldwide.

I attend more than 5 international art fairs a year and exhibit on every continent, my experience is equal to the university of all things art.

The future is coming from a different direction now and the way we buy and sell art is changing.

You will need to look after your signature brand or you will be left behind. Remember, you are your brand; no one else can do it for you and what better way than to invest in yourself. 

So before you go, I know that both you and I are serious about our business & creating great art, so let's make this happen.
