Nelli Nedre
Hey everyone, it's time to tell you the story of little Nelli, who dreamed of becoming an artist. She spent her childhood with markers, pencils, and paints always in hand.
Later, she went to study fashion design, but in her third year of university, she still wanted to study art. She entered a competition for young Russian artists, painted pictures, created installations, and dreamed of studying abroad.
But no one supported her, and her dream was put on hold. The paintings were thrown away. It was so painful to be rejected by loved ones that it was difficult to take up paints again. That was until she went to see a psychotherapist.
Releasing the most painful, dark stories from her heart and telling them helped her, specifically through painting. That's how the story of how art and creativity returned to her life began. It gave her the strength to overcome the toughest challenges.

My mission as an artist is the same as in my business of sustainable clothing brand. On the one hand, I think about the future of our planet and understand the irreversibility of the impending environmental catastrophe, and I want to help people notice and find a solution how to save the Earth from ourselves.
On the other hand, I always started helping from my inner circle: the closest, friends, employees and colleagues, listening to them carefully and helping to find a way out and overcome difficulties together. I realized that art and nature helped me get through my most difficult moments of life and continue to heal me. So I want to share this practice with other people.
My projects
Hand with Katerina Sokolovskaya
Sculpture "Hand" was one of the first Katerina Sokolovskaya project in the beginning of her career. When she was offered to recreate new "Hand" for an exhibition of young artists and sculptors in the space of the Richter boutique hotel in Moscow, we decided to do it together.

In 2021I attracted young artists and designers in order to use recycled products from my clothes production to create art objects. Together with Katerina and my team of young designers, we created a new sculpture. It was stuffed with the remnants of fabrics from NNEDRE production. Next, we had the idea to continue creating similar art objects in order to attract the attention of other designers and industries, to come up with alternative uses for leftovers from their collections.

Now I decided to continue this project, using this general concept, having worked out the production technology of "Hand". During 2021, we did not throw away the textile waste of my production and recycled it into "wadding" - a recycled material that is great for stuffing and is a more environmentally friendly filler. I continue this project together with new production in Armenia.

Drawing in Nature
I have had a special connection with nature since childhood, as I grew up in a house in a deep forest. The older I got, the stronger I felt this connection and the energy that nature gives me. My second passion since childhood was drawing. No matter what difficulties I encountered on my way, I splashed all of them on paper in the form of vivid pictures.
Now I continue this practice, just as I did in childhood. I remembered this way in therapy with my psychologist, and I use it both to solve complex problems within me, and to reflect my love and state of happiness when I am in harmony.
I go out into nature, meditate, walk with dogs there and draw canvases. During the process, I completely surrender to my instinct and immerse myself in a state of complete unity with the outside world.
