Nelly is a published illustrator, animal lover, and professional nap taker. She hopes to re-live the golden age of illustration by drawing things that capture her fancy.
Born in Russia, raised in Ghana and now residing in San Francisco, Nelly's multi-cultural background pervades her work. For her, fashion illustration is about more than just creating figures in the latest fashions. It has become a means to address and express her views on the lack of diversity in the fashion industry as a whole.
