Natasha Shoro is a contemporary artist based in Southern California. As an introspective woman, wife, mother, artist, and educator, Natasha has developed a keen philosophy in which she explores the world as a fluid canvas. Mediums range from abstract mixed media, mixed media collage paintings, to site-specific installations. Earth, Air, Fire & Water celebrates Natasha's relationship with nature, and it is through these elements that she unfolds her inner being. With nature as her inspiration and guide, mapping and overlapping of aerial views and ocean depths are prominent in her work as are varying patterns and textures.

About the Artist: Natasha Shoro holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design with honors and distinction from Iowa State University and a Master of Fine Arts in Drawing, Painting and Printmaking from California State University, Fullerton.

With 17 years of teaching experience at several institutions, Natasha currently teaches at Orange Coast College and Coastline College in South Orange County, California.
