Nino completed her Art Foundation course at Chelsea College of Arts and went on to do a Graphic and Media Design Degree at The London College of Communication. She has since turned her creative hand towards T-shirt designs, interior design and painting.
Based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, Nino paints in her home studio looking out onto her garden.
Nino’s paintings are based strongly on colour and composition. Her abstracts are inspired by forms found in nature and the every day activities of a busy family life. Her signature style involves hard strokes of the pallet knife and layers of tone to convey movement or stillness, thus allowing the viewer to reflect on their own emotions from the abstract.
She describes herself as an emotional painter, her work taking its direction from her mood. Oils are her preferred medium as it maintains its intensity of colour and its fluidity adds to the movement and texture.
