Nadya is a wildlife artist and photographer with a passion for the environment and conservation. Born in Moscow, Russia but grew up in Canada, she expressed a keen interest in drawing and creating at an early age. With childhood dreams of becoming a biologist like her mother, she realised that she also loved seeing, drawing, photographing and painting the natural world she keenly studied. She now lives in Australia where she continues to observe animals in the wild and sharing Nature’s beauty through photography and art. Nadya is a graduate of Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD University) with a focus on Illustration and Photography and has an exhibit with the Queensland Wildlife Artist Society here in Australia.
