BIOGRAPHY

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, horticulture, and color theory are the foremost influences on her work. In late 2019, she returned to the Bay Area. She currently lives, works, and makes art in San Jose.
