Born into a world of color, art and metal, Nina Cambron was raised by a painter and a tool and die man, exploring the ways of lathes, mills and grinders.
After receiving her Bachelor’s of Fine Art from the Cleveland Institute of Art & University of Michigan, she held several positions as both an Illustrator and Creative Director. While working freelance, Cambron landed a licensing deal with Recycled Paper Greetings, Landmark Calendars, Meadowlark Press, and Talefeathers and BirdBrain, with a fused glass line including figures, bird feeders, bird baths and outdoor decor under the name “Ninart.”
Cambron’s interest in different mediums progressed to transferring her images onto ceramic and glass, sewing on paper and welding, in order to add metal elements to her work. In the early 90’s, she transformed 100% into handling warm glass, which enhanced her palette to great designs, compelling color combinations, the use of words and unexpected materials, which became the driving force in her work.
Today, she maintains her studio in the Detroit area creating mixed media and fused glass figures, sculptures, lighting, tiles, clocks and all things glass. Her art can be found here, at Mullaly’s 128 Studio & Gallery in Elk Rapids, Michigan, as well as in 100 other galleries throughout the United States and Canada.
