Nina has made an international career with her music,
and has enjoyed a life of travel and cross-cultural
pollinations of the creative kind.
Her art is warm and immersive, sharing great escapes.
With the Lockdown her Art feels more valuable than ever-
Though she cannot physically travel, her mind and hands are free to make trips of every hue,
shape, and sound, picking up instruments, recording, and singing, painting, sculpting,
taking photographs, and making and presenting radio shows for Soho Radio,
Sounds and Colours magazine and more.
Nina is a born collaborator, she has seen it happen all around her since she was tiny,
...and now shares this with her own children who in their turn make and share with her
and others too - oh yes- glory be!
She loves to galvanize good energies, to introduce people
to each other and to themselves, allowing them to see that dreams can be turned into realities,
and dreams can take us all out of banality.
