I’m Natasha (she, her), operating under the name, Chikaboo Designs. ‘Chikaboo’ was a childhood nickname given to me by my aunt or my dad, we can’t remember.
Anyway, I plan and deliver creative projects for people all over the world. I take part in all stages of the process and offer my skills and expertise wherever necessary.
I am more interested in the project I am working for, than what I specifically do. As a result, my skills have expanded over the years. So far my services include:
I bring a lot of passion to my work. I am self-motivated, enthusiastic and quick to learn new skills so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, don’t be discouraged.
My working relationships have been flexible, friendly and personal. This is the way I think is most enjoyable to work. These relationships have also often taken place entirely over Skype so if you happen to be on the other side of the world, don’t worry!
So if you need support for your business, a project or initiative contact me. I’m always up for new challenges and opportunities.
I’m also a practicing artist
A lot of the work you will find in my portfolio and shop is my own art practice. I am primarily a visual artist and writer. I create for the joy of it and because self-expression keeps me sane and fulfilled. My work has taken me to spaces, people and experiences that have changed my life.
I am interested in communicating my most intimate personal and political experiences through art. I strongly believe that it is through sharing our inner dialogues and conflicts, that we can feel less alone and more fully enjoy the human experience. I work in a range of mediums and am driven by concept rather than format. My focus has so far been on illustrative work about my experience as a woman, and as a person of colour but I hope to explore more philosophical questions moving forward.
