Artist / roller-skater / ballerina
Nadia has an overwhelming passion for miniatures which may eventually consume her life but she balances it out with physical activities to keep her fit and her mind sharp! She is British although she will always tell anyone who asks that she is a citizen of the world.
As a miniaturist, Nadia has to combine many various skills such as woodworking, sewing, sculpting, graphics design, painting, 3D modelling to produce realistic miniatures - with a touch of kawaii (that means cute in Japanese).
