Natasha Hoen (maiden name Poleshuk) is a multidisciplinary artist that paints and makes sculptures. She uses acrylic paint with various gel mediums on canvas, wood, and Plexiglas panels. Her sculptures are made with upcycled plastic and natural materials.
Natasha was born in 1976 in White Plains, NY, and grew up in Florida. She received her Bachelor's in Fine Arts Painting from the School of Visual Arts, NYC in 2000. Natasha then continued her studies in the Masters program at Yale University. She decided to withdraw from the Masters program and continue her journey in a different direction. She spent the next several years working, being a wife, and raising a family.
Natasha's work has an abstract-surrealist quality to it. Her work is influenced by nature, the colors, shapes, and uniqueness. Her process is both meticulous and chaotic. Natasha's work leaves you with a feeling of playful whimsy and wonder.
