If you have been to the studio or your kids have taken a class here, you probably have run into Nina. She’s helped me in the studio and with classes since she was about 12 and she took classes with me before that. In the past few years, she’s also started to photograph most of my work (almost every shot on my website is hers!). Not only is she talented, mature and capable but she is also just about the kindest soul I’ve ever encountered. She graduates from Aptos High School this week and will be pursuing a focus in the arts at Cabrillo College next fall. I’m so proud of her and can’t wait to see the mark she makes on the world!
