Nina’s teenage years were spent immersed in art, playing around with subject matter, colour and mark making earning her several accolades. After school she combined studies with international travel for model work, drawing new inspiration from every city she spent time in.
She strives daily to have an environmentally conscious lifestyle – turning to a plant-based diet and growing as much of her own produce as possible. Nina sources raw ingredients to create her own skincare and haircare products. When out shopping, she seeks out and supports small local businesses, as well as franchises that support individuals and initiatives in her community and are transparent in their labour and resources practices.
Abandoned and rescued animals are close to her heart, and have her supporting TEARS, an organization that not only rescues animals but also provides free sterilization and subsidized medical assistance in low-income communities in the greater Cape Town area.
