Strelkina In Cross Stitch

Nadezhda Strelkina was born in the small village of Fedoskino, not far from Moscow. Nadezhda has always been regarded to be a uniquely gifted painter of original works. Inspired by old Russian legends, folk stories, and religious beliefs, Nadezhda's works are dreamlike images of angelic women that evoke emotion and even spiritual feelings in the viewer. She paints in a most subtle manner and is especially known for her soft, flawless faces, delicate postures, and masterful translucent technique that captures the essence of the feminine beauty. These hard to believe cross stitch adaptions catch the magic.
