About me

Gender FEMALE
Location San Diego, CA
Introduction I have been painting for 10 years without any formal education in the arts. Twelve years ago, when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, I had to give up a very active lifestyle of hiking, swimming, biking and camping. I prayed and asked God to give me a new passion. I believe that when God closes a door, He opens a window. A friend of mine believed I would be good at painting and gave me some canvas and oils and told me to go for it. I credit my success to God and call my painting ability "Nina's Window."
