Nina Cook

Nina Cook was born in Whakatane in 1967. She was educated in Wanganui and then at Christchurch Polytechnic School of Art and Design where she received a Bachelor of Design.Until gaining her degree, Nina was largely self-taught, mastering her media through books, experimentation and practice.During this time, she increasingly received commissions by word-of–mouth.

After graduating, Nina was employed to teach drawing at the Christchurch Polytechnic School of Art and Design and taught both there (figure and general drawing) and at Natcoll Design Technology (drawing, art history and design history) for three years. During this time she also worked as a Graphic Designer and illustrated several children’s books.

Eventually, the pull to paint became too strong and in 2007, Nina established the studio from which she currently works. Nina’s work is held in private collections in New Zealand and overseas.
