Nina Meledandri is a native New Yorker, living and working in Brooklyn. I began shooting in high school, graduated from Hampshire College (concentration: photography) and returned to NYC to assist Evelyn Hofer while pursuing fine art and editorial photography. In 1990, I basically stopped shooting and taught myself to paint. I spent the next 20+ years as an abstract painter, joining the David Findlay Gallery in 2003, which lead to two solo exhibitions in NY. Around this time I bought a digital camera to document work and suddenly I was shooting again. I continue to paint in both watercolor and oil and as a photographer I post to a minimum of 3 sites every day. Recently I have focused on developing projects that merge my painting and photographic output.
