Natasha Raskin Sharp reveals her grandfather ‘was a magician’
Bargain Hunt airs on BBC One and it is known for its impressive list of antiques experts, including Natasha Raskin Sharp.
The presenter is recognised for offering up her knowledge on Antiques Roadtrip and Baggage Battles amongst other daytime shows.
The 36-year-old said: “I was gently nudged in the direction of the antiques trade and auction houses by my dad, who thought that I’d be well-suited to the environment.
“Although I’d never normally admit it, he was absolutely right!”
Natasha is the daughter of contemporary Scottish artist Philip Raskin, who specialises in painting landscapes and seascapes.
Philip’s works have featured in many exhibitions and have been sold all over the world.
He was a restaurant proprietor for 20 years before becoming an artist full-time, having studied at the Glasgow School of Art.
It was through the auctioneer McTear’s, who was selling his work, that Natasha developed an interest in the profession.
Back in 2015, Natasha was known to have sold her father’s work and one piece, From Here to Eternity, was snapped up for £600.
