The ultimate creative:
One with a confident and multifaceted skillset, that accelerates new ideas, is excited to play, and whose batteries are constantly charged. You thirsty?
For years, people have asked for a way to work with me in a way that combines my expertise and idea generation, whilst providing ongoing support.
They wanted help not only with learning the practical stuff (the methods, techniques, and strategies) but with figuring out the “how do I make this successful in the long game?” question.
They wanted to be immersed in a waterfall of new ideas and techniques to experiment with.
They wanted to push their creative boundaries to the realm of "I didn't know this was possible for me!"
They wanted a creative business that thrived… not just survived.
But more than that they wanted to remove the noise, the doubt and questions and have the confidence to create. To feel invincible when facing any brief.
Wouldn't it be incredible to get so lost in your work that you look up and hours have already passed?
I can help with all of that.
YOU ASKED FOR IT... I'm coming up with the goods.
Until now, the only way to get my eyes on your art and designs was through my complete compositions course - but then what?
At long last, I cleared space to provide this much sought-after offering.
The perfect combination of
Learning, SUPPORT, inspiration, & ACCOUNTABILITY.
No modules and no heavy curriculum to fall behind on. But loads to help you grow and evolve into the creative you desire.
Best of all, you’ll learn from someone who’s like you.
Someone who’s walked the walk, started at the beginning and is a walking talking creative junkie. Hi! Here we are! That's me, and all your fellow Inhouser's too 🙂
So who am I?
Howdy, I'm Natasha
An international print designer and artist and I've spent the past 12+ years working in the textiles industry creating SELL OUT collections all through the power of hand-crafted original artwork.
If you haven't guessed already, florals are my favorite.
You will find most of my artwork in the stores of high-street giants you know and love.
But HOW am I different?
Because creating with your hands is something only YOU can do!
100% made by me, no pixels or snapping lines are generalising my hand. And that's something very few can say.
At University my tutor told me; "If you can paint flowers, you will always have a job in the textiles industry".
But the BEST bit is…
There are countless ways to do it, and what's more, it doesn't have to stop at flowers. Your skills can cross many dimensions. It's about experimenting, finding the thing you love, and your way to do it.
That's how you make this work in the long game!
So you're thinking...
"How can a creative hub ELEVATE my creative practise?"
Remember… even the lone ranger didn't do it alone.
I've spent the past 2 and a half years teaching over 700 people through my online classes and mentoring programs. The thing that has elevated their practices, encouraged them to keep going and pushed them to complete each lesson has been the students by their side. This ultimately has led them to the successes that you see today.
WHAT they say...
Natasha is an incredible teacher,
being able to learn under someone who is as talented as she is patient and kind is a rare gift. The detail she goes into is amazing, and she is really easy to learn from – especially with her videos where you can pause, repeat and learn at your pace. Obviously she is at the top of her game in terms of skill, what makes her an amazing teacher is she strips away the fear of learning – as beginners (myself included) we are all scared of starting something new. But this is a teacher who makes you feel valued, and like one step forward is the biggest win in the world.
Natasha’s floral bootcamp has been an ABSOLUTE game changer for me!
From basic brushwork techniques to understanding how to paint a readable flower, the bootcamp was easy to follow and gave me clear direction on how to improve. Before I was stuck with my florals and the bootcamp gave me the confidence I needed to move forward and grow as an artist. Thank you, Natasha!

The community support throughout the bootcamp has given me more confidence in my work than I had beforehand.
Natasha was always very encouraging and made me feel at ease about learning and not stressing about everything being perfect first time. Her passion for floral painting is evident and I’m so glad that she chose to share this passion with all of us. I particularly enjoyed the roses tutorial as cabbage roses were never my favorite flower to paint, but with the ‘c’ shape brushstroke technique I’m happy to say my roses have took on a whole new life!
I learned SO MUCH from this course in a short period of time.
It made me realise every stroke is planned, every highlight and lowlight is planned, every negative space is planned, BUT the beauty lies in creating florals that look so effortlessly chic , that it is impossible to think the strokes are planned and well thought out. The whole course is a perfect process for the brain. The most important thing the course has helped me with is, over come my fear. Natasha solely plays an important role in making us realise we can paint to our hearts content and be happy if we would just let go of the fear of mistakes or outcome. The course helps to push you out of your comfort zone and makes you realise there is so much more inside you, if you would paint without the fear of the result.
It will UNDOUBTEDLY help me to make more beautiful prints.
This bootcamp with Natasha has helped me to go a step further in my floral watercolors, which will undoubtedly help me to make more beautiful prints.
The watercolour bootcamp was amazing.
Natasha breaks down her talent and methods into units that allow you to grow at a very regulated pace. By the end, you find using all that was learned from each unit together all at once. It’s amazing. The group chats fostered by Natasha are inspirational. She creates a very open and creative space in which to thrive. It’s a wonderful journey she offers up. My own creative business will benefit from watercolour bootcamp.
I have DEFINITELY seen an improvement in my own painting
I’ve loved taking part in the Floral Watercolour Bootcamp. Natasha is incredibly talented, an amazing teacher and a lovely person. She shares SO much helpful information with you, it’s definitely value for money. I have learnt a lot about watercolour techniques and have definitely seen an improvement in my own painting. Thank you Natasha!!
The SECRET recipe is you & me with a sprinkling of EVERYONE else.
A community is where the real magic happens.
As my early design years were spent as in-house designer, I know the full power of a creative studio. It was electric. The simple action of watching, appreciating and understanding your peers, is a force to be reckoned with. To see others come up with new designs sparks new ideas….these are the lightbulb moments that allow your own hand to develop.
This is the
that comes with CREATIVE spaces
"So I have to come up with more ideas, I've just figured this bit out."
I feel ya', there is a lot of "prepping the pipes" before you can let your creativity flow.
Don't get me wrong, freelancing is the best decision I made.
- No more pigeonholing!
- Choosing your own briefs is exciting
- Owning your own business is incredible
But of course, there's always a little salt amongst the sugar.
There's no one directing, no one helping with decision making, no one else there to inspire, share knowledge, or elevate energy! NO ACCOUNTABILITY!
- Being a constant treadmill of creative ideas isn't achievable. The more you force it the stronger the creative block!
- Sometimes it's lonely, you miss that organic creative hub, chatting with like-minded peers, and because of that you end up procrastinating and stuck with a little white box syndrome. (and social scroll whoops!)
Let ME ask you...
- How much time are you spending deliberating over what's trending, whether you should do this or that instead of actually designing?
- Are you spending precious time researching and mood boarding instead of actually creating?
- You're too focused on nailing what's happening NOW instead of what will last? (it doesn't always have to be the trend)
- Are you stuck with one style, one look… meaning your sales potential will plateau.
- Ultimately you are spending time thinking, and not actually doing.
^^^ If that’s how you feel ^^^
you're in the right place
You might have noticed that I:
- Don't stick to one "Niche"
- Can create multifaceted collections
- Have a varied hand all tied together with a golden thread
- I concentrate on target marketing alongside trend
And it’s all about knowing the possibilities at your fingertips and having your eyes opened to the inspiration around you.
Throw out the "How to be a successful surface pattern designer" handbook.
Who said the riches are in the niches?… not in this game! Not when it can stunt your creativity, your development, your messy side, the side we need to be active. (you heard it here first).
I’ve never had the discipline to consistently do things I’m not obsessed with. And I'm obsessed with creating gorgeousness and enjoying every part of the process. The messy, the midway and the marvellous!
Let's face it...
If you’re still here, you already know you’re INTERESTED.
This is perfect if you’re a:
- A print/pattern designer
- An aspiring print/pattern designer
- An artist ready to dive into something new
- A creative person who wants to stretch their abilities and experiment
- Are ready to become part of an electric creative tribe. (AKA an Inhouser)
- Are wanting to learn new skills and new ways to utilise the ones you already own
- Are ready to embrace the messy to unlock the marvelous
- Are wanting a community to grow with, inspire with and encourage with.
And you want to:
- Have new ideas to share with prospective clients regularly, consistently, and confidently.
- Expand your repertoire
- Figure it out. The possibilities, the bits you like, the bits you don't.
- Have a multidisciplinary hand within your collection to appeal to and draw in more DREAM clients and customers.
- Become so obsessed with creating hand-drawn artwork, you can’t NOT do it.
As a designer and artist, it's integral to shake up your style, inject new avenues, and allow your hand to travel in different directions in order to max out your sales.
After all, no one wants the same design twice!
But you need SOMEWHERE to turn when your blank page is STARING back at you?
My goal is for YOU to:
- Become a creativity machine, doing work that makes you feel self-expressed, alive, and engaged.
- Tap into your talent, and experience breakthroughs in areas where you’ve been stuck forever.
- Be free to create instead of just thinking about creating!
- Say to me, “OMG I no longer feel like I'm churning!”
I've created the Inhouse Creative to provide a space that will take of some of that burden… one that will inject inspiration and guidance creatively whilst also teaching you some new techniques for you to use to allow you to thrive.
I'm going to give you all of the above…learning, inspiration and structure so you can spend less time thinking and more time doing…Alongside a heap of connection, community, and creativity.
It's time to knock it up a gear
Action begets action.
The inclusive membership with
COMMUNITY and creation at its heart.
How will it serve you?
Okay, let's BREAK IT DOWN...What do you get?
To coincide with the monthly brief and mood board there will be a tutorial lesson taking you through different techniques and styles of creating artwork.
You will be invited to monthly live art classes, which will be where we interpret the mood board and this month's technique into something new.
It will be very interactive over zoom, a great mixture of experimentation and fun, and a great way to see how other creative brains work.
Monthly Q&A / Hotseat to smooth out any kinks. An opportunity to ask me and your fellow in-housers your struggles to help you over the roadblocks.
ACCESS TO THE PRIVATE MEMBERS-ONLY
Where you can share work ask questions from your peers and start making friends.
MONTHLY TAKEOVERS OF
THE IN-HOUSE CREATIVE INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT.
As a member of 'inhouse creative', you will have the chance to take over the membership for a day. As the account grows it will be great exposure to start showcasing yourself and get more eyes on you. I want to support the growth of your entire business, not just what's happening inside.
MONTHLY MOOD BOARDS
There will be monthly mood boards that will coincide with the monthly art class. This is for you to experiment with something you would perhaps otherwise avoid.
ACCESS TO INTERACTIVE PINTEREST BOARDS
For you to use and add to as a way to share the research stage.
There will be 2 x 1-hour sessions scheduled each week. These are optional, but a really great way for you to be accountable, stop the scrolling, and spend a full hour working with no distractions.
What is digital co-working?
These sessions are over zoom, everyone is on mute and spends the hour working on what they need to get done. you don't learn anything, it's just a great way to be accountable and remove distractions.
If you want to be buddied up just let me know and we can arrange it. Having someone to talk to about your goals, and ideas (who isn't your mum and/or partner) really helps to keep you on track, inspire you to push forward, and drive you to succeed.
We will be adding mini-courses to the content throughout the membership to give you a short deep-dive into specific areas, like our
Watercolour Winter Florals 4-part course
Creating Colour Harmony 4-part course
