Nina's inspiration comes from a lifelong love of the natural world and her experiences working as an ecologist, in the water industry in particular. It is no surprise that water and the life within it is a recurring theme in Nina's work and many of her prints feature the wild life habitats and species she worked with in the field.
"Printmaking gives me a buzz because it gives me the opportunity to combine my creative streak with a love of practical experimentation fostered during my career as a scientist and teacher. I love that moment when you take the first pull off a new plate!"
Nina is interested in creating prints rooted in landscapes that arer meaningful to her and she is also very excited by patterns and textures in nature. She likes painterly prints and sometimes her work can lean towards the abstract. Reduction linocut printing is one of Nina's favourite methods as she likes the element of danger! Nina has also embraced the challenge of working with wood with a series of woodcut seascapes and wood engravings of the natural world.
Nina is a member of Cambridge Open Studios and Cambridge Drawing Society.
