My name is Nina Boodhansingh and I'm an Artist/Muralist 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 familiar elements within an abstract world. The surface of the work has a tangible texture built with paint, various gel mediums, sand, and/or gold leaf. Modeling layers, dimensions, and illusions of space in the painting, the finished pieces suggest parallel, yet distant, worlds. 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 work with collage, jewelry, drawing and photography. I began mural work and painting/decorating home interiors in 2021. In my free time I love gardening, tending to my plethora of house plants, hiking, exploring nature, roller skating, baking, spending time with my husband and our pup and let's not forget eating. I love food.
