“I’ve var­ied my style a lot in my ca­reer, fit­ting to brief­ings or tar­get groups, and it never both­ered me un­til re­cently,” Na­dia says. “Last year I felt the need to find my own home and dec­o­rate it. So I started a search for a vis­ual lan­guage that can de­scribe how I see the world.

“I’m still search­ing for my voice, or for the story that I want to tell. I’ve al­ready found my per­sonal guide though. It seems to be hu­mour.”

Na­dia’s in­flu­enced by artists whose il­lus­tra­tions are win­dows into their in­ner world, such as the sur­real power of Sergey Kolesov and the gen­tle el­e­gance of Adam Tan.

Pa thfinder “I was more than happy when Paizo com­mis­sioned me for half-orc char­ac­ters, es­pe­cially as they were women war­riors. I’m weirdly at­tracted to this com­bi­na­tion and had a lot of fun do­ing those. I grew fond of this lady in par­tic­u­lar.”
