Nerina has also completed two diplomas in Art Therapy and conducts sessions with a variety of minority groups. 

“To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts, such is the role of the artist.”

Nerina has always felt that the role of the artist is to depict the sacred. To make the invisible visible. To uplift and inspire an audience through invoking a sense of awe and wonder. Nerina is interested in creating ‘pure’ art – that which fulfils its highest function of inspiring reverence in the beholder.  Pure art is an expression beyond the language of words, beyond the intellect, beyond the ego and beyond form. It is a window into the great conscious presence that resides both within and without.
