About

You are very welcome to my website which showcases my photographic and painted artwork.

My name is Nadina Ironia (lat. irony). I was born into a creative   family and always knew that one day I would be an artist and do a job that I love,  and I’m now living the dream.

Why horses? Horses are not just beautiful animals to me! Once horses saved my life and I owe them mine now! They gave me another chance to begin life from nothing after terrific accident back in 2001, where I’ve got serious injuries and life seemed to  be at  the  very  end to me for  couple of years until I decided to return  to  the yard… I was far from riding but I was  happy to be just beside horses… and now… I believe in miracles! here I am: riding, painting, jogging around with  my camera and enjoying colors of life!  Horses are the best treatment on the planet!

Paint and brush has always been in my hand, even math lessons wasn’t an exception, I kept drawing horses nonstop which annoyed all my teachers :)

I don’t remember exactly when I first took camera in my hand,  probably  just before I learned to say  HORSE as my  grandfather and my mother are  photography addicts :)  Officially my photographic career started in 2005, when my photograph was featured in an equestrian magazine. I have since had hundreds of pictures published in magazines and newspapers, as well as pictures sold worldwide.

In 2009 I developed my own course Photography for Beginners, which is now successfully taught through 3 languages both in groups and privately
