״Wisps of mist danced around them in slow circles, appearing and reappearing while periodically evaporating in some places. All the rest melted into the secretive air of the Underlands. It seemed as though they were standing in the same forest where they had been only a few minutes earlier, yet it was clearly different. Yellow sunlight illuminated the gnarled tree trunks and a greenish glow draped over them from an unknown source of light. Tiny golden lights hovered in the air as autumn leaves in shades of pink and gold drifted slowly from the treetops to the ground like an incessant drizzle.״

Ola Natashina Gandelman was born in March of 1989 to a single mother in Leningrad (now known as St. Petersburg), Russia.
While trying to raise Ola on her own, her mother would often provide her with children's books to occupy her, thus igniting Ola's love for literature and story-telling. The first stories she was exposed to were the works of Hans Christian Andersen, the Grimm Brothers, and especially a wide variety of Russian folklore. These fairytales and their unique darkness and characteristics found their way into her heart and stories, claiming it to be their home.
When Ola was old enough to hold a pencil she started to draw. Her style changed with age, though she was mostly sketching as a young girl. The big turnaround came after her first book “Colors of Awakening” was finished. Ola developed a unique style, saturated with naïve and magical realism characteristic. From that point on all of Ola’s paintings were illustrations and stories from her book, created in her signature style. Now Ola allows to follow her into that magical world in colors as well.
Nowadays, when Ola isn't writing fantasy war stories or participating in art exhibitions around the world, she spends her days reading, playing the piano, training hopefully for half a marathon and practicing Yoga. She lives with her husband and their cheerful yet somewhat cowardly dog and a snobbish cat. All three are among her biggest fans.
