Natalia Grezina was born in 1987 in Sevastopol, Crimea. She graduated from the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Moscow State University (Sevastopol branch) with a degree in Geography & social ecology, and the School of Contemporary Art MMOMA.

2010—2016 worked as an illustrator and graphic designer. Now lives and works in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Natalia creates soft sculptures, objects, installations, graphics and photography using embroidery, sewing and various artificial and natural materials.
