Natasha Raskin Sharp is the founder of Exhibit Auctions and an auctioneer with a decade’s worth of experience on the rostrum.
Born into a family of art lovers and collectors, a degree in the History of Art from Glasgow University not only cemented Natasha’s love for the art world, it served to pave a path towards a career as a pictures specialist, too.
After ‘cutting her teeth’ in a long-established, traditional auction house setting, Natasha has created Exhibit Auctions in order to sell contemporary art in a fittingly contemporary way: our auctions are broadcast live, directly from the exhibiting artist’s studio.
Natasha will be hosting these auctions in her inimitable style and hopes that you’ll tune in, click ‘bid’ and treat yourself to your new favourite work of art.
For daytime television viewers, Natasha’s face is a familiar one: since 2015, she has been a co-presenter of BBC One’s much-loved antiques game show, Bargain Hunt.
Natasha’s relationship with BBC television began in 2013 and it continues to be a fruitful one. Regular contributions to some of the corporation’s most-watched shows (The One Show, The Antiques Road Trip, Bargain Hunt, For What It’s Worth and Flog It! among them), showcasing her warm and sincere personality, have endeared this versatile presenter to audiences the world over.
Natasha’s weekly radio show on BBC Radio Scotland has attracted a loyal listenership since she began broadcasting in 2016. As a host and interviewer, Natasha’s known for her relaxed and approachable manner. Responsible for curating the songs played on the show, she prides herself on presenting a truly eclectic playlist each and every week.
Hosting charity auctions – for high profile and local organisations alike – is something that Natasha is proud to do. If you would like to discuss an upcoming charity event, please use the ‘contact us’ page on this website.
Charities include: BBC Children in Need; Marie Curie; Parkinson’s UK; The Variety Club; The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice; Action for Children and The John Hartson Foundation.
