Artists: Nina Mera

Nina Mera
Her works are vibrant - not afraid of light, they call to you from across a room. The colors are big - the subjects worth study.

Born in New York City to a Cuban father and an Irish mother, Mera has seen much of life. She has traveled widely, frequenting Paris, London, New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Philadelphia. Her work is heavily influenced by the French masters, particularly Lautrec.

Mera's work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and is in many collections world-wide. Her mediums include oil, linoleum cuts, silk screen and sculpture. Also an accomplished jazz musician, Mera has succeeded in incorparating this art form into her work. Scenes of famous jazz clubs and musicians clutter her studio. One of her several studies of Billie Holiday was reproduced on the cover of the August, 2000 Art Business News.

We have just added a new section containing Ms. Mera's Jazz Suite, a wonderful limited edition series of 24 hand pulled linoleum prints which was used to illustrate "For Jazz," a book of sonnets by Peter McSloy for and about the jazz greats of our time. These linocuts are available separately, or as a deluxe boxed set on Magnani Pescia paper. You may browse the Jazz Suite Series separately from the other artworks in the Jazz/Blues Collection.
