My name is
Nadezhda Ivanova - Nadya


A little more about me

I was born in 1964 in Sofia. I graduated from University of National and World Economy (UNWE Sofia).


I have been working as Chief accountant for dozens of companies, I am proved specialist with skills and a lot of knowledge. Parallel to my profession I am working as graphic designer, pre-print and advertisement for more than 20 years.

How I started

The first time I felt thirsty to start painting and learn how to do it right was in 2016 when I decided to draw on a stained glass. The stained glass has always fascinated me with their magical as if not real lights. I bought myself brushes, oil-paints and lacquers and started my first project - drawing stained glass doors with dimensions 2.00 m x 0,80 m.


During the period 2016-2018 I started classes on graphing painting, fusion art, batik and palette knife painting. And there I found my real passion, drawing with palette knife was like igniting little spark in blazing and never-ending fire.

What I like to paint

I love to draw colorful paintings with bright and fresh colors. My favorite time is when I am painting horses, birds, flowers and Bulgarian landscapes.


Dozens of mine paintings could be found in Public institutions and private homes in Bulgaria, Germany and USA.
