Original charcoal, acrylic painting on canvas
Natasha Miller is a self-taught artist who was born and raised on Vancouver Island and travelled by boat to the East coast where she currently lives and paints on a tiny lobster fishing island in the Bay of Fundy. Natasha has invented her own painting technique where she creates seascapes and landscapes using homemade maple charcoal from her Italian wood fired pizza oven, soot, ash and acrylic paint used for the bold silhouettes and pops of colours. Most paintings consist of 60-100 layers of medium and sealers and take almost a month to complete. She has always drawn inspiration from quiet moments and the silhouettes all around- especially trees and rugged coastlines, the sea and its boats, birds and beaches and her current work reflects this. Natasha's work is highly collectable and represented in over a dozen commercial galleries in North America and Europe.
