My name is Nina Boodhansingh and I'm an Artist based in Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania. I received my BFA from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 2010 and I'm a former Resident Artist at Kutztown University (Kutztown, PA), The Cigar Factory (Allentown, PA), and The Banana Factory (Bethlehem, PA). Currently working from my in-home studio, my work is inspired by nature, skyscapes, landscapes, microscopic images, and the cosmos. Each painting represents microcosms and macrocosms based on abstract elements of the world. The surface of the work has a tangible texture built with paint, various gel mediums, sand, and gold leaf. Modeling layers, dimensions, and illusions of space in the painting, the finished pieces suggest worlds that are familiar, yet distant. These worlds may include intricate drawings of pod-like structures that can move fluidly throughout, or be alienated from the surrounding environment. Evoking a dream-like quality, there is a mood of calmness in each piece.
I also dabble in collage, jewelry making, drawing and photography. In my free time I love gardening, hiking, exploring nature, roller skating, spending time with my pup and let's not forget eating. I love food.
