Introducing Pinjarra Hills artist Nina Summers.

Nina has been a longstanding member of Sculptors Queensland, where she regularly showcases her work in society exhibitions. Her sculptures have a unique appeal, often being chosen by visitors to become part of their personal collections. In 2018, her skill was recognised when she won the Concept Stainless Award for her piece, "Quoll in Hand."

Nina deepened her expertise in the arts through a studio ceramics course from 1973 to 1975, and later, a one-year sculpture course in 1980. These experiences have greatly contributed to her knowledge in ceramics, which she applies both in her professional work and in leading workshops.

Nina has a diverse approach to her craft, working with materials ranging from ceramics to cold casting, marble chips, cement, and resin. "Each material brings a different dimension to my work," Nina explains. "It's about finding the right medium to express the idea I have in mind."

Her work, known for its thoughtful design and execution, has also been part of collections at significant locations, including the Government House. Nina's approach to sculpture involves experimenting with various materials and techniques, allowing her to continuously evolve and share her vision through her art.
