How do you find inspiration?
Nina Cobb Walker: Inspiration comes to me in unlikely places. I try to paint what I know and to create a body of work that will be memorable and touch the viewer and spark a sense of joy. These paintings are from a body of work titled “Tapestry”. The idea came to me as I was looking at some old photographs of my family. I am privileged to be the keeper of family photos. I wanted to create a story of my family from a different era using some of the familiar faces to me which inspired me to use a limited pallet to paint in to give the feeling of the times. This is an ongoing project which I will continue to paint and bring the generations forward.
