Nina Ulett is a fine art painter and illustrator from Santa Clara, CA. From 2012 to 2019 she lived in Southern California, graduating Summa Cum Laude from Laguna College of Art + Design in 2017. Her work is often characterized by the placement of figures in vibrant dream-like spaces. She feels her love for fantastical stories, natural imagery, and color theory are the foremost influences on her work. In late 2019, she returned to the Bay Area and is currently teaching at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara. She is looking forward to making art in a new context and rediscovering home.
