ARTIST CLOSEUP • Nina Litvinoff

Pen and Ink Drawing


If you like the sea, birds flying, otters and seals basking with their pups in tangles of seaweed, boats moored in peaceful bays and artists illustrating the bustle of life around them, you will enjoy the paintings and drawings of Nina Litvinoff.

 

A native of the Pacific coast, Nina enjoys sketching subject matter on-the-spot, in the open air. Her sometimes humorous depictions draw many passersby to comment on her free and original style and interpretations of life around her.

 

The teacher credited most for the development of her style is the prominent and well loved artist Stephen Rodionoff, her father. Rain or shine, they were seen sketching and painting on the Morro Bay Embarcadero, or other coastal areas with Marie, Nina's mother by their side. 

 

Nina enjoys doing commissioned paintings, sketches or other creations using both her imagination and fantasy to create a more descriptive figure and image. Her highly detailed drawings of ships and Victorian Homes have been seen in galleries, art shows and homes all over the United States, Europe and Asia.
