Nadia was born and grew up in Russia. She has been involved in creativity since childhood, she drew a lot. Childhood spent in Mongolia had a great influence on the perception of the world. It was then that she realized how diverse the world is - a different nature, people, culture. Buddhist temples, masks, giant statues, music, ornaments amazing the imagination. All this enriched the inner world and had a great impact on the development of personality. These paintings remained forever, like prints, in her memory, which would become the subject of her research in the future.
