Natasha, 35, from South Wales, is a Prince's Trust supported entrepreneur and founder of nGraves - a bespoke craft business. She is supporting The Great Create with Goodwill Ambassador Fearne Cotton.
Natasha grew up in St Vincent & the Grenadines before moving to South Wales in 2004. Never destined for a traditional 9-5 job, she had always been a very creative person when she first encountered The Prince’s Trust Cymru, which helped her turn her creative vision into a reality.
"My journey with The Prince’s Trust Cymru started when I was encouraged to sign up to the Enterprise programme. The programme helped me turn my creative vision into a reality, and that vision was nGraves; a bespoke craft business, creating items from concrete and upcycled materials.
Natasha's vision was to set up nGraves - a bespoke craft business, creating items from concrete and upcycled materials. Through her business, she organises weekly art therapy sessions for a diverse range of people across South Wales, from children with complex needs to residents of assisted living facilities.
"Art has long been my method of self-care, and now I have the opportunity to show others how art and getting creative is fantastic for a person’s mental wellbeing."
Alongside her work on nGraves, Natasha decided to give back to by becoming a Young Ambassador; sharing her journey at local events. Natasha will also be supporting The Prince’s Trust Cymru by hosting a Great Create party in March.
"As for the future, I hope to continue knocking on doors and bringing my unique style to more and more people across the world."
