Nadezhda was born in Fedoskino village
in the family of hereditary painters.
In Russian language the name Nadezhda
Viktor Semenovich Burbyshev, a
wonderful artist, gave his daughter this name, hoping she would continue their
dynasty and glorify their name.
Nadezhda has graduated Fedoskino
miniature painting school. While her first works were of classic style, she has
now almost devised her own style, which gently combines elements from both
symbolism and art-nouveau.
All works, which are now in the
factory's museum and being copied by other artists, are made of gold leaf,
silver and nacre. Some of Nadezhda Strelkina's works are exhibited in Britain,
France, Netherlands and America.
Nadezhda has been kind enough to allow us to use her artwork in our "Creations
for Fun Group".
Nadezhda - hope you enjoy the Showcase
of your glorious art:
Once again Nadia, thank you ever so much
for your kind and gentle heart:
Happiness comes at times to all
But sadness comes unbidden
And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden
