Natasha is a traveling artist depicting the beauty of the loveliest cities of Europe and Russia, like St. Petersburg, Riga, Paris, Venice, Genoa, and Avignon. She transfers her discoveries of beauty with the world on the silk canvas. “We Russians are kind of fatalistic. We feel that when your number is up, it’s up. In the meantime, we enjoy life to its fullest”, Natasha reflects.
