Nadia has been working as a professional artist in Hawaii for the last decade. Her formal art training began in high school and continued while earning her BFA in sculptural ceramics and archaeology at UT Austin and Steven F Austin State University in Texas. During and after college she worked as a technical illustrator of archaeological artifacts and worked for a stained-glass window manufacturer. Her current sculptures focus on the design imagery found in Polynesian cultural artifacts plus the harmonious repetition of those symbols and the feeling of being in the ocean. Today she works primarily with local tropical hardwoods incorporating mirror, glass, iridescent waxes, metallic foils, paint, and epoxy into her pieces.
Her work has been sold at the Haleiwa Arts Festival, Punahou Carnival, is sold at Wy’s Gallery and she has created custom sculptural commissions for Archipelago Hawaii. She is also in the permanent collections of some board members of Punahou School in Honolulu. In 2018 she received a 3-year Fellowship grant from the Clark Hulings Business Accelerator Program.
Her current events include several solo shows on Oahu and a collaboration with the International Marketplace in Waikiki.
