Natasha Newton

Natasha Newton was born at Ipswich in 1974, daughter of Barry John Newton and his wife Gillian I. née Ellis, who married at Deben Suffolk in 1971. An artist and illustrator working from her studio at Crownfields, Ufford, Woodbridge, Suffolk also working in Surrey. In her 20s, Natasha started her profession as a fine art painter, exhibiting work in numerous exhibitions at galleries across the UK and overseas including Snape Maltings Galleries and Serena Hall Gallery, Southwold both in Suffolk and 2 Little Spoons, Stockholm, Sweden and her work has been selected several times for major shows in London, including winning an award at The Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours Annual Exhibition, as well as taking part in group and solo exhibitions at venues across the UK and abroad. Illustration was one aspect of her career that found her, rather than something that she consciously set out to do, and as her work gathered a larger following, she was hired by art directors, publishing companies and businesses to work on various projects and the illustration side of Natasha Newton Art & Illustration was born. Her art has been used by the book publishing company Random House Press including for a series of five books by author Jorge Bucay (born 1949) and by Quarto books and Moo Print Ltd on a selection of business cards and stationery, and to illustrate magazine articles and CD covers and her work has been used by 'Homes & Gardens', 'Resurgence & Ecologist', 'UK Handmade' and many others. Inspired by the simplicity of the winter landscape, she often paints scenes that reflect where she would like to be and tends to use colours that evoke a strong memory or feeling, making the work symbolic and slightly dream-like. Through art she explores a love of birds, nature, and astronomy, conveying the magic and beauty that surrounds us every day. In recent years, her work has gained an international following and now sells to collectors all over the world, with paintings and illustrations in over twenty countries.
