Natascha Vine was born 1991 in Rinteln, Lower Saxony and currently lives and works in Detmold, North Rhine-Westphalia. Her artistic development began with her father, who is excellent at drawing, something that has always fascinated her. Despite occasional difficulties with her father, art usually united her. After a few detours, she graduated from vocational school as a design assistant (graphic design & object design) and studied interior design for a few semesters, starting early on to develop and collect photographs to incorporate into her designs.Tell us your story, why did you become an artist?

Am I an artist? I think I am on my way to becoming one. My form of abstract art is unique, my techniques and approaches are individual. My goal is to transform my photographic work into something artistic. I want to be an artist and stage my photographs in a big way and present them to the world. Because my art allows us to immerse ourselves in another world - a small, often overlooked world of everyday life. "I love the way my pictures cloud natural perception." The enlargements from nature are sometimes so abstract that everyone interprets something new or unique into them. If I succeed in giving nature, which is the work of art in itself, a stage and drawing attention to it, then I see my mission fulfilled and myself as part of this staging as an artist.

When you create a new work, how do you go about it? What comes first?

As I said, my approach is different. I go out into nature, at any time of day or season, and immerse myself completely in it. I start to notice the small structures of the tree bark, the fine lines of the flowers and the shapes that emerge. Then I reach for my camera and capture the moment. At home, I continue my work by trying to transport the mood and the colours that I perceived at that moment into the work. In this way, something inconspicuous is depicted on a large scale and is given space to present itself. My pictures speak their own language and invite the viewer to immerse themselves in a new world.What can you tell us about your studio, what makes it special to you and how does it influence the way you work?

I currently work as a freelance graphic designer and children's yoga teacher in a co-working space, where some of my artwork hangs. I appreciate the exchange with different people, but especially working with children, as they are so full of imagination and inspire me. But one day I dream of having my own little studio where I can develop my full potential. It should be bright and have several corners - one for wild painting without having to pay attention to the floor, and another with my desk and a small camera set. In another corner, I imagine a tea kitchen with a cosy lounge corner. I love tea! Various herbs would hang there to dry, and the studio as a whole would be full of plants and flowers. A studio like this would influence my work by allowing me to be even more creative and experimental. Who knows what would be possible and what works could be created! I would also occasionally open my studio to my yoga children to teach them yoga and painting in a practical way.Is there a work of art in your life that has especially impressed you?

The greatest work of art is the world itself - nature and everything that goes with it. This may be a cliché and sometimes even overwhelm me because it is so loud and colourful and raises many questions for me. But on the other hand, I draw my inspiration and creativity from it. I see the beauty it holds, as well as its strength and patience.

Reach to the stars: where will you be in 5 years?

In five years' time, I see myself in my own studio, running a design studio together with my husband, who is an architect. There we can fully realise our talents and creativity and fully realise our vision. We want to create wonderful places that enchant and invite you to dream, because this opportunity is often lost in the stress of everyday life. I would also like to regularly take part in exhibitions and present my artwork. I would also like to collaborate with talented designers. This would certainly be an enriching experience.Learn more about the artist:
