Natalya has produced the Norwich branch of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School since 2013. Dr. Sketchy's is a fantastic network of burlesque life drawing groups originally founded by New York artist and illustrator, Molly Crabapple. It has over 200 hundred branches worldwide including Paris, Tokyo, London and the Philippines. The branch's regular monthly sessions take play at the Unthank Arms but Natalya has been known to do some larger, more bonkers, events including sessions on a Mississippi paddle boat on the Norfolk Broads and a murder mystery life drawing event at Norwich Puppet Theatre. 

Natalya enjoys creating theatre and writes and produces her annual show, Le Theatre de Decadence which entwines story-telling with top notch burlesque and cabaret. 2020 will be the start of her new variety show, "Kick Up a Cabaret" which she will co-host with her partner in crime, Mr. Paul Preston Mills.
