Natasha Duwin was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and has since lived in New York, Tokyo and Miami. In her work, Duwin explores the ideas of female-ness and womanhood, and how to construct a strong female identity without falling into the traps of tradition and expectations. Duwin uses non-traditional materials, such as metals and organic matter, in traditionally "feminine" techniques, such as weaving and embroidery. She has shown extensively over the last couple of years, is included in several prominent collections, holds an MFA in Visual Arts from Florida International University, and is an Artist-in-Residence at ArtCenter South Florida (800 Lincoln Road, Studio 107, Miami Beach FL 33139).
