Nadia focuses her work on how technology works with and against society’s progress toward a peaceful world. She highlights issues regarding decisions people who work in technology have to make. The vitality of the images are in stark contrast to the dark consequences when promoting human life and dignity isn’t prioritized. Technology provides many beautiful and interesting distractions from its risks. A major motif in her work is the atom bomb explosion and the mushroom cloud. This is a seminal example of advancing technology with a result of changing the rules of war. Nadia credits the origins of her work in large part to her parents.

Her mother who taught her to draw, paint and create and her father who was a conscientious objector of the Vietnam war taught her to question. Nadia’s family didn't have TV so they spent evenings discussing books quite often when she was a child. While Nadia favored scifi and non-fiction her father read almost exclusively war history books and her mother read almost everything as a librarian. Resulting discussions delved into the moral questions and origins of wars, weapons, and of where the world was headed. She started painting as a way of recovering emotionally from the loss of her ability to dance when she tore her ACL.

She had been a ballerina for 16 years and was forced to re-evaluate her future. At the same time she was beginning to code. This led her down a path of observing and participating in decision making in the fast paced world of modern tech. Recent works include visuals of facial recognition programs, deeplearning, and her sculptures which she calls Bitguardians. Bitguardians are modern talismans for safety in the cyber realm. You are meant to keep them close and consult them when making cyber security decisions and for overall digital protection and success. She also uses the analogies of magic in other commentary including predictive algorithms as oracles.
