October 2018 First Friday Artist - Natasha Andries

Natasha Andries

About Natasha Andries

Natasha Andries was raised in an artistic family right here in Missoula.

Her grandfather was a railroad photographer and her grandmother painted for leisure. Her mother is writer and her uncle a skilled (yet stage-shy) guitarist. Natasha’s life has been surrounded by music and art.

Like many talented artists, Natasha is a little shy about her first works, but feels she has really blossomed with her recent use of gouache and oil paints.

In her own words,

Creativity requires, to an extent, the juxtaposition of things that don’t fit well together. This may be why great art often happens during times of great strife, and during times of great novelty. There is no doubt in my mind that it will be accompanied by striking art which moves the spirit.
