Progressing towards a unification of process and philosophy

Natasha Lavdovsky was born in Victoria, BC, and grew up in the suburbs of Saanich, on traditional Tsawout First Nations unceded territory. She attended Princeton University, where she studied Visual Arts, Geology, Oceanography, Environmental Studies, and Psychology, eventually receiving a B.A. in Studio Art & Art History in 2009.  After working for a year as an art consultant in New York City, Natasha decided to return to the West Coast, and pursue a self-lead investigation into how to live off the land, and establish sustainable art projects. When living in Haida Gwaii, she gained a deeper understanding of the importance of decolonization and environmental stewardship, which has greatly informed her artistic practice. Natasha works in a variety of mediums (including, but not limited to: painting, drawing, printmaking, film photography, digital videography, sculpture, claymation, and nature installation). Natasha is a member of MediaNet, Crossgrain Photographic Society, and Xchanges Gallery and Studios (where she is in charge of recycling). Natasha currently lives a short walk to the beach, in the city of Victoria, BC (unceded territory of the Lekwungen people).
