"This work is about the sacred world that exists between human beings and nature. To reach the place within that spiritual dimension where our daily ritual is woven into Mother Nature herself." ~Nana
Nana was born in France and emigrated to the United States in 1981. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. She uses a wide variety of media to create pictorial pieces that impact the viewer on several physical, mythological and emotional levels. Nana’s art is a vigorous affirmation of the feelings that unfold in her life, while exploring the boundaries of imagination.
