About Natasha Marin

Natasha Marin is a Seattle-based conceptual artist, published poet, and activist with roots in Trinidad and Canada, whose work focuses on people, community, and healing.

She spent several weekends at the Burke Artist’s Studio in early 2022 working on a dress using printed cloth, cowrie shells, and other natural materials. Throughout her residency, she invited the visitors in to contribute to the project and learn more about the cowrie shell’s cultural ties to community.
