Hello and welcome.
My name is Tasha (as you might have guessed) and I’m currently going through a bit of a career change right so you might see a few things from my past shops such as Natasha de Vil that I ran on Etsy for the last four years. As much as I enjoyed making handmade items I am moving into a more art orientated direction including painting and fibre arts and possible other mediums that I fancy experimenting with.
After becoming self-employed in 2014, I started out selling handmade items in my Etsy store. I also started selling vintage which is another passion of mine, rummaging around antique malls and charity shops is fave pastime of mine. Whilst I do still make handmade items from time to time and occasionally dabble in selling vintage, but as I said my career path is currently changing direction, and I am becoming more focused on creating art and also embroidery, which you will be able to follow more of on my instagram.
Being creative has always been a part of my life whether it be in a professional or personal capacity. Sometimes the line between hobby and work becomes a little blurred but I love making things and as well as being a keen seamstress and knitter, I also like photography, gardening, cooking and writing. I am also trying to be more adventurous with my writing and sharing my essay writing on my blog. I am also currently writing a novel after many years of short story writing.
I draw my inspiration from lots of things but mostly I love 90s pop culture (Twin Peaks is a favourite), music, movies, and exploring. I love walking, taking wrong turns and taking a billion pictures of the odd things I find on my travels. You can also find me wandering around art galleries and fashion exhibitions.
