Nadia’s aim is to recreate all of her favourite food in miniature form. She strives to make them look as realistic as possible by combining different types of clay and media.

When she is not modelling, Nadia enjoys her daily routine of walking the dog and cooking. She lives in a village in the English countryside where the nature and surroundings often inspire her work. Her other hobbies include classical ballet and roller-skating.
