She revealed her inspiration for experimenting with unconventional materials came from growing up in the Russian countryside and receiving natural souvenirs from her parents when they travelled. 

The 24-year-old often involves her friend and family in posing for her artistic images. Katya has a number of projects for which she grew items such as luffas from scratch to use.

She added: ‘Even if it‘s not natural for a person to use press-on nails, at the if same time, if he or she feels it‘s organic, then it‘s beautiful. To me, beauty is not about aesthetics, but about feelings.‘ 

Her recent work has included a dried out leaf placed over an eye as well as faces covered entirely in flower petals.
