Silver Spring, United States


Born in Siberia, Nadya's artistic journey has been shaped by a series of relocations and a constant search for identity. Leaving her home country at a young age, she found herself grappling with the challenges of cultural assimilation and a sense of displacement.

Nadya's parents frequently changed jobs due to visa restrictions, leading to additional relocations throughout her childhood. These moves disrupted her sense of stability and left her feeling disconnected, caught between cultures. Amidst this transience, her art became a sanctuary where she could explore and reconcile her fragmented experiences.

This unwavering love for art led her to pursue a Bachelor's degree in Visual Arts at Oberlin College. Immersed in a supportive artistic community, she further honed her skills, exploring various mediums and techniques to refine her unique artistic voice.

Following her graduation, Nadya relocated to Washington, D.C., where she has since made her artistic home. The vibrant atmosphere and cultural diversity of the city have provided her with a rich tapestry of inspiration, fueling her creativity and pushing the boundaries of her artistic exploration.
