 TRR:  Tell our readers how you started focusing on pet portraits

NF:

I’m inspired by Calvin Nichols, who creates magnificent paper sculptures. His intricate animal pieces come to life as they jump out of their mat. You’re intrigued and really want to touch the softness of their fur. I really appreciate and adore his sophisticated white sculptures and talent. We have something in common, patience.  After closely studying his work, I have begun to incorporate fine details in mine. Calvin’s influence has developed my animal portraits to a totally new level. I’ve decided to utilize my paper sculptures to display the love that pet owners have for their beloved pets. They love their furry family members like children. 
The Initial Sketch

The Initial Sketch of “Riley”

I produce unique artwork that will be cherished forever. Their pet pops out in 3D as I lovingly cut the precious pet’s alluring portrait from their photo. Each piece is marvelously displayed in a 12 x 12 classy black shadow box. Prices start at $300.I’ve developed two styles of portraits, using a picture of my neighbors’ shitzu, BeeBop as a sample. My basic design is comprised of larger pieces of textured paper with limited detail. I’m interested in focusing on deluxe portraits that are very detailed, which means I may spend 15 hours just cutting alone.

BeeBop has appeared in several shows. Jason Freeman saw BeeBop and he immediately knew that this was the memorial he had been looking for after loosing Weenie several months before.

Jason exclaimed, “Nina created the perfect tribute to our Weenie.  Weenie’s paper art portrait hangs in a place of honor on our living room wall and it truly feels like our Weenie is with us once again.  Friends and family, who knew Weenie, are absolutely amazed when they see the piece – its not just a dachshund, it truly captured the essence of Weenie and everyone immediately recognizes that it is her.  Every day when we pass the art piece, I smile a bit – feeling our precious Weenie looking back at us once again.”

I’m currently working with vets, animal hospitals, groomers, doggie daycare and pet cremations centers. I am member of The Association For Pet Loss And Bereavement and pet loss support.

 

 

I belong to several art associations, and was ecstatic when I receive an invitation from See.Me to exhibit up to three images of my work within the newly installed digital exhibition room of their New York City gallery. The show opens on Thursday, July 25h and will run through the Tuesday September 10th. See.Me is an international community of over 700,000 artists. Less than 1% of the membership was chosen for this show. I feel honored and excited!
