Natasha Newton is a professional artist and illustrator living and working in Suffolk, England and Paris, France.
Her inspirations and influences are wide and varied, but her recent work centres around her love of nature, birds, and a deep fascination with the moon and the stars. Her artwork – once described as ‘simultaneously charming and edgy‘ – often has a slightly surreal or dream-like quality, and has been compared to the work of artists such as Charley Harper, Maurice Sendak and Edward Gorey, among others.
