About the Artist
Nina Chernenko would describe herself as a good mother, a dutiful nurse, and a proud Ukrainian, however, there is far more to the woman who scavenged local parks for rocks to paint. Born and raised in Edmonton to Ukrainian parents, Nina was constantly surrounded by art and beauty growing up. She was raised in a culture that encouraged colour and creativity, expression and exploration, curiosity and daring. As a child she danced and sang; played instruments and made music; decorated pysanky and made krashanky - now, building on her culturally influenced artistic repertoire, she has begun to paint. She started with rocks - alluding to her history of art on eggs - and has now begun painting on canvas. Her images are often influenced by her own loves and interests - which is why she has made a habit of making animals the focal point of her work.
