My Bio
Hey, nice to meet you!
My name is Nadejda and my profession is zograf. I have been painting traditional orthodox icons for the last 18 yeas. All my works are made in traditional byzantine style, painted with tempera on wood. Most of my icons are copies of originals created 14-18 century.
I'm very proud to say, my works have been sold in almost every country in the world.
