This is a story around emotional literacy for kids. It teaches them how to understand the neuroscience behind energy and the effects it has beyond the 5 sense modalities. A simple yet effective way to educate kids on energy, to teach them to get in touch with how they feel and how others feel. This leads into a 5 day online program for kids to take to learn further applications of emotional literacy.
Natasha Lea, designer and illustrator was born in Perth, WA and began her life as a professional artist in 2012. As a self-taught illustrator, Natasha thrives on her complicated line work, black colour blocking and psychedelic colour pallet.
Natasha works primarily with pen, ink, markers and archival watercolour paper. She is influenced by the world around her and childhood memories, therefore, inspiration can be triggered by anything at anytime. The trouble, Natasha finds is slowing down her thought process to create an image that tells a magical narrative.
Natasha held her debut exhibition in 2012, at the Chrissie Parrott Arts Centre- “Laced”. Comprising of works from each corner of her creative life such as, costume, bridal jewellery, puppets and illustration.
This was a fantastic platform for Natasha to see which creative path to follow.
Inspired by how well her illustrations were received, Natasha followed up “Laced” with two sell out exhibitions at KURB Gallery Northbridge, Western Australia – “self titled-Natasha Lea” in 2013 and “Dreamscape” 2014.
In between solo shows, Natasha thrives in fine art group exhibitions, produces wedding gowns and customises collectable dolls.
