Nadezhda was born in Siberia where it is winter 9 months of the year and bears roam the streets. Her journey to becoming a children's book illustrator has been long. For many years she was doing it just as a hobby, while video editing for news channels was her main line of work. However, although this was sometimes creative, it was mostly boring and not really what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. She later got into game development which is where she started working as a 2D artist. It was at this point that she realized what it means to enjoy your work and to love what you do. From there she got into children's book illustration, and this made her even more happy. To her, the creation of children's book illustrations is something incredible - you start with something small, perhaps just a little creature, and by the time you are done you've created a magical dragon with a personality of its own, and all you can do is sit back and smile. Now, the illustrating of children's books is Nadezhda 's main line of work and her three little dragons, her three sons, help her along the way by let ting her see the world through the eyes of children.
