Nadia Hagen and her husband, Paul Weir, are the founders of pyrotechnic circus, Flam Chen.
Nadia on New Year's Eve in Bisbee.
I happened to be sitting next to Nadia in the park on New Year's day as she drew in her sketchbook. I was amazed by her drawings. She told me she sketches all her ideas in her book first, and then makes them a reality as Flam Chen.
I asked her if I could take a few pictures of her sketches, and she told me I could.
Nadia blows me away for so many reasons, and these drawings are just one aspect of the mystery of Nadia Hagen.
