Cyanotype Artist

October 11, 2019

I was testing out a new google search options for this website, and randomly came across a mention on UNCC blog about myself: "Nat Tcherniak is a Russian born artist working in Toronto, Canada, primarily with cyanotype. Her work focuses on the idea of a "Connective Tissue", which she emphasizes by mapping, layering, and Creating frames within her work. The concept behind them is her search for her own "psychological construction assembly"." 
I must say it is very well comprised short bio, I think I might use it myself from now on. Thank you Yasmine Royal

World Mental Health Day

October 10, 2019

Today is World Mental Health Day, another day in my Mental Heath Awareness life. As you may know, I am huge advocate for mental health and attending to it, so I have created another variation on my "Headlands" series, with the Doors' lyrics, "ghosts crowd young child's fragile eggshell mind". To me, it's about those ghosts of the past, from your childhood, the inner demons that sit inside your head, still, and tell you what you SHOULD be. The battle is every day.

Also, I think beehive is me. And yes, there is a Doors song for every situation in life.
