Born in Melbourne and growing up in Canberra, Nadine has a passion for wildlife art with a particular affinity for birds. As a child she spent time bushwalking with her family in the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve near Canberra, a picturesque valley with an abundance of native birds. Now based in Melbourne, Nadine continues to develop her fluid style using watercolour as her primary medium. Watercolour performs beautifully to capture the movement and freedom of the subjects she paints. For Nadine the most rewarding paintings are those with the fewest strokes, the minimalistic approach making her work immediately recognisable. In 2015 Nadine left her twenty-year career as a research scientist to become a professional artist. The decision to paint full-time has been rewarded with numerous successful solo exhibitions and award winning paintings.
