“Nana is a French painter living and working in New York. She uses a wide variety of media to create pictorial pieces that impact the viewer on several physical, mythological and emotional levels. Her work explores the boundaries of imagination.”

“Nana’s art is a vigorous affirmation of the feelings that unfold in her life, and explores both the worlds in and around her and their relationship to each other. The work seems to seek out its own monumental style.”

Nana was born in France and emigrated to the United States in 1981. She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

” 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
