Born and raised in South Africa, Ninette immigrated to New Zealand in 2016 with her family and now lives in the sunny Bay of Plenty, in the charming coastal town of Tauranga, New Zealand.
A creative at heart, Ninette enjoyed many different art and craft mediums over the years, but fell in love with pewter as a medium in 2004. It has been a passionate love affair ever since!
Ninette is inspired by the beauty of her surrounds and the pristine beaches, forests and lakes of New Zealand and her work is influenced by the vibrant colours and creative energy of growing up in Africa.
Her work includes working on metal mediums such as pewter, aluminium, copper-plated aluminium and colour-coated metals.
Her work features a lot of texture and depth and she enjoys creating floral patterns. Her work has a sense of joy and whimsy and she loves exploring with different colour techniques on metal, and her work is often bold and brighly coloured.
Ninette only creates one-of-a-kind, truly unique artworks, so each piece is a collector's item.
She is currently working on a few collections, which includes Metal Mandalas, Hearts and Crosses.
