Natasha also ran an art supply business with her father, and after Glasgow auction house McTear invited her dad to sell his work there, she went along and discovered her love of auctions. She told the Sunday Post: “I’d never been to an auction. So I went along with him and it was such a buzz I immediately got him to ask them for a job. At first, there wasn’t an opening, but I phoned and phoned and finally they gave me an internship in 2011.”
Her father also previously ran a restaurant, something Natasha admitted she could see herself doing. She said: “My plan was always to follow in my parents’ footsteps and open a restaurant.
