About:

Nina first studied art at Pennsylvania School of Art & Design in Lancaster, PA and later received her BA in Art from Westminster College in Salt Lake City. She is  the artist / director of Star House Gallery, a gallery  featureing abstract, self-taught, and outsider artists and artwork in Kingston, NY.

 

"My process is instinctive and energetic. I have athletic approach which produces an aggressive mark. Using metaphors of elements such as posture, gesture, color, and the nature and characteristics of lines, strokes, and marks as a sort of personal cryptograph to decipher visual information, my work becomes a vehicle for the subconscious. Within this process my focus is to identify and allow authentic markmaking to emerge. Paradigms which surface brush on perceptions of god-concepts, outer space, and of the notion of seprateness inside of community. "
