It describes my sensitive feelings throughout London’s lockdown life. The disconnection between me and my families, my cats, my friends and society triggered me to ‘steal’ their life.

Natasha works with images of sincerity and processes of suspending disbelief to create moments where the viewer might feel included in an artwork’s story. She creates accessibility in her work by allowing an audience member to both mentally and physically piece elements of a narrative together.
