Based in Christchurch, Bournemouth, Dorset. Specialising in Contemporary British Art.
Every spring we are awakened from our slumbers by the sound of birds – in the garden, in woodlands, in the city – the varied sounds and melodies are hard to escape from. A reminder that not all is dark, a sign of hope for the coming season, birds have always fascinated Nina in their freedom, flight, and delicate form. In her latest exhibition ‘Birdsong’, she uses watercolour and ink to depict movement and the fleeting gestures that birds make, in as few delicate brush strokes as possible. Each bird is named after a song lyric featuring the bird in question, allowing for humorous interpretations of the characters and qualities that we as humans associate with our feathered friends.
