Nina Winters was born in New York City and schooled at the College of Fine Arts and Architecture at Cornell University, the School of Visual Arts and Parsons School of Design. She later moved to the woods of New Hampshire to immerse herself in nature.
She began her career as an artist in the field of paint and color. She made the cross to three-dimensional art after having a vision of monumental sculptures enduring through time as positive communications to society.
Today she makes this vision a reality. She is currently working on a monumental commission to be installed in Texas in January of 2012. Nina has also made a line of Wearable Sculptures (jewelry) available internationally, funds of which will go toward another project Nina has begun, helping underprivileged children to create their own Monumental Children's Peace Parks forwarding the message that a drug free person, home, community, country, and planet will create a more peaceful world.
Her work in bronze brings forward her sophisticated knowledge of the use of color that she developed in her painting years. She uses patinas in bright and subtle ways to convey the stories she tells of the human potential.
Working from her studios on the waterfront of Clearwater, Florida and in the backwoods of New Ipswich, New Hampshire, she creates sculptures that are unique solutions for corporate, home and hotel architecture as well as monumental works for urban and country environments.
Her clients include corporate officials from Paine Webber, the Wall Street Group, and Hiram Walker.
Her work is in major collections in the United States, Canada, England and Australia including the private collections of celebrities such as Chick Corea (Grammy Award winning jazz musician), Howard McCrary (Grammy Nominee music producer), and David Campbell (Grammy Award and Oscar winning arranger).
Her bronze work is featured in the Paramount film "Kiss the Girls" starring Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd.
Gallery shows include The American Institute of Graphic Artists (NYC), The Art Directors' Show (NYC), St. Petersburg Center for the Arts (FL), Stephen Christopher Gallery (Rancho Mirage, CA), Rick Moore Fine Arts Gallery (Naples, FL), The Pen & Brush (NYC), and the Aaron Faber Gallery (NYC).
Now an award winning sculptor, she has proven her place in the world of art and shown that every piece can speak truth to millions.
