Biography

Natacha Best

Born: 1961 in Paris, France.

Natacha lives and works in Paris, France and Hydra, Greece dividing her time equally between the two.

The landscapes, especially the architecture, of all the countries she has travelled to, have attracted her passion and imagination.

Her recent water colours of the Greek Islands are extraordinary; capturing meticulously the detail and spirit of Greece. The Mediterranean light and shade are perfectly reflected in her work.

Natacha's emotional balance can be found in her imaginative pastel portraits of women.

She has exhibited for more than twenty years throughout France, Spain and Greece. Her delightful and compassionate work has found the homes of many collectors and art lovers.

Since 2006 , she is the Vice President of the Verena Foundation .
