Who are you?
Hi I’m Nat photographer and language teacher. Born in South America, brought up in Bondi, relocated to Newcastle to raise a little family. I teach French and Spanish and photograph anything and everything. I’m currently photographing and documenting the many versions of women.
Tell us about the space – what was its previous use? Anything unique about it? Your response to the space?
The space is overwhelmingly huge and sun filled and just wonderful. It takes a few weeks to get your head around it actually being ‘yours’ to create in. I work mainly from the studio and my sunny office. I love being among other creatives, who are like-minded but also very different, we bounce ideas off each other and support each other through those moments of self-doubt and celebrate our milestones.
What inspired you to get involved in Renew Newcastle?
During my first visits to Newcastle I was shown around by a friend whose brother I went to school with in Sydney, yeah that Newy 2 degrees of separation! We went on a studio tour and well that was it! I was fascinated by the thriving studios, the amazing diversity of collectives and individuals, the creative hum engulfing the wonderful Novocastrian architecture. Deserted spaces being coloured and revived with the works of so many different minds and hands inspired me to be daring and explore all the ideas that usually keep me up at night.
