Auctioneer at McTear’s, Natasha Raskin’s interest in the arts was sparked from a young age. Born in 1986 in Glasgow in to a family of art lovers and collectors, a degree in the History of Art and French at Glasgow University cemented a love for all things aesthetically pleasing. Paintings, sculpture and beautifully-crafted bespoke jewellery are all right up Natasha’s street, so it’s no surprise that her enthusiasm for her role as Auctioneer at McTear’s shines through.
One of McTear’s auctioneers Natasha enjoys nothing more than selling the items that she has valued, catalogued (and coveted) from the rostrum.
Natasha has been chosen to present BBC daytime favourite Bargain Hunt, is a regular expert contributor on both The Antiques Road Trip and Celebrity Antiques Road Trip, For What It's Worth with Fern Britton and Flog It! with Paul Martin. Guest spots on Radio Scotland's Music Match and The Janice Forsyth Show have proved successful, too.
These are exciting times for Natasha and all of us here at McTear's wish her well!
