Nina has always been a lover of all things art. She began creating at a young age, a love for animals fueling her creativity. Her father, being an artist, influenced and supported her ideas. Her mom, kind and patience, also stood behind her with her art career. She majored in graphic design but, enjoys the fine arts so much more. She loves to make things that one can hold and appreciate. Going to community college, she was able to take every art course she could. Her favorites include sculpture, screen printing and also etching (a lost practice). During her time at Massasoit Community, she won "Best in Show" two years in a row in the schools art festival, a very proud moment for her and her family! Along with art, Nina considers music and dance a beautiful way to express yourself as well. She studied and practiced dance for 15 years. Being creative her whole life, Nina began creating jewelry as a hobby with her mom. For seven years, Nina has worked with children which has taught her unconditional love and patience. She loves to learn from them and also encourages them to be unique and creative in their own ways. Working at Muse, Nina hopes to pass on a creative outlet to all the come her way and teach people to love art and themselves. To love and express yourself is a beautiful thing and sometimes you have to create your own sunshine.
