Hi there! I am Natascha van Niekerk, Fine Art Photographer and Maker 🙂 I live in the beautiful village of Nature’s Valley, South Africa, with my husband and two dogs. We are surrounded by the most incredible forests, mountains, lakes and sea and from here I dream up and produce my entire product range. We are a husband and wife team and all items are handmade using my own original photographs.
I completed my degree in Photography in 2004 after which I worked as a freelance photographer in a variety of commercial industries and also taught photography for many years. I always wanted to pursue fine art photography, so we decided to take the plunge a few years ago and moved away from the city to a place where I can spend as much time as possible outside, exploring our beautiful earth.
My work is deeply inspired by the area we live in!
What you see here in this product range is the result of countless hours of experimentation, days of frustration, a healthy amount of persistence and obsession and moments of celebrating the small victories. It is truly a labor of love filled with passion and commitment to my art.
